While in California, a few of our meetings were held in an old, grand church on Colorado Blvd.
I regret not getting pictures of its beautiful stained glass windows.
I do NOT regret having taken photos of THESE pictures
hanging on a HUGE bulletin board in a hallway leading to our meeting room.
I found them incredibly fascinating.
This was a children's/youth wing of the church.
I like the way they are done primarily in shades of blue and how the artistic styles vary.
"He (Jesus) climbed a mountain and invited those he wanted with him.
They climbed together. He settled on twelve, and designated the apostles.
The plan was that they would be with him, and he would send them out
to proclaim the Word and given them authority to banish demons.
These are the Twelve."
(Mark 3:14-15, The Message)
"Then he told them what they could expect for themselves:
'Anyone who intends to come with me has to let me lead. You’re not in the driver’s seat—I am. Don’t run from suffering; embrace it. Follow me and I’ll show you how.'".
(Luke 9:23, The Message)
He has called US, too. ME, too...
to be with him. To climb together...
