NARTHEX'S NEWEST ADDITION
Trinity Lutheran’s newest addition to the narthex is a must-see.
When entering the narthex, God’s people are greeted with a beautiful, breath-taking painting – created by Julie Wall - that hangs from the ceiling.
The painting, which took about 8 hours to complete and replaced the painting of Jesus, depicts Advent, Christmas and the Epiphany.
As we see the shepherds, Joseph and Mary, and the Wise Men in the painting prepare for the birth of our Savior, how do we prepare for Jesus?" said Julie Wall, who teaches art at Trinity Lutheran School.
If you haven’t had the chance to check out the painting, make sure you catch a glimpse. The plan is to rotate artwork to reflect the church year.
“The question is: how do we continue to bring artwork into the church,” Julie said. “Art has to teach, preach and confess.”
The current Advent, Christmas and Epiphany painting will be in place through the beginning of January.
“The goal and hope is to continue to rotate the artwork, so we aren’t always seeing the same thing – to the point where we don’t’ even realize that it is there,” Julie said.
In the next couple of weeks, be on the lookout for another must-see addition.
