Art piece for church

It was Trinity Sunday today (in the Lutheran tradition at least) and I knew we were going to have stations for each person of the Trinity at church this morning.  I was reading in Romans 8 earlier in the week, and read this familiar passage about the Holy Spirit.  After playing around with it for a few days, this is what I came up with yesterday and brought to church today.  It's on a piece of canvas that's 24 inches tall, so I was working large.  Our church welcomes artistic expressions, and it's great to be able to contribute every now and then.

Below is our "Father" station.  No art work -- we (on the Art Team) were talking about how a burning bush would be appropriate, but settled for a bible opened to a Psalm about God's greatness.  We can't have fire (not even candles :-( ) in our worship space, since we meet in a movie theater and the owner is strict about that.  (Notice the movie themed carpet in the pic below!)  BTW, our church web site is if you want to check it out.


I love reading your comments!
