Riddled with God
Another view of #1 station in the Art Pilgrimage mentioned in yesterday's post along with the plaque.
Sometime next week I will add my comments and incorporate your thoughts if there are any, responses that is. (I know you are thinking!)
For now, I will briefly add a few points made by the author of The Parables in his Preface.
Some of Jesus parables or stories are meant to illumine and others to veil a truth, hide it from those whose response determines they are destined for judgment. So, if we are open to see/hear the point of the parable, it will illumine or shed light on our condition, and on the divine remedy. Like a mirror to see ourselves, and like a window into God's heart. "Self-recognition without a divine provision would bring only discouragement." (p 7)
I wonder what we will see of ourselves and God in this art form?
