So, here it is. This is the fourth, and last, window in our huge display. The center window is a boat on the open waters. A small apsidal window above has a dove flying overhead. The legend says, "The Church is the Ark of Salvation." The window on the left has animals in it. The window on the right -- this one -- has people. The animals are one aspect of God's love for his creation; redeemed relationships between people is another. Both illustrate the central legend and title of the work.
All I had to do was paint some minor facial and hand features on the figures. Oh, yeah, and I added the little house in the distance behind the embracing Father and returning Son at the top.
And now, we start carpentry! Dedication is set for June 4 in the morning worship service, ready or not. I hope to have the light box built and installed by then. We'll see.
So far, 21 youth and 7 adults have worked on this project, which was initiated and designed three years ago by the boys of my 2014 Confirmation Class.
