Between the Lines: All Saints: October 30, 2011

Text: Revelation 7:9-17

Take a good look around and within.  What in your body, psyche, and soul—your whole life—and in the world around you brings tears to your eyes?

Literally, what would it be like for you if someone or something were to wipe all your tears from your eyes?

Is this a good thing to have happen?

– Caren Goldman

 

The Arrival of the Mystical Lamb by Jan van Eyck

What strikes you in this painting? Why might the painter have chosen this story for an altarpiece? What feeling might the artist be trying to express?

How would you draw (tell/mime/sculpt) today’s story?
