|Detail from Mepkin Statue|
We want to ascend, but so much keeps us here, our earthly worries so heavy.
We are like this building, held to the earth by many weeds:
I was struck by this Ascension reading: the latter part of Luke 24:9: "so stay here in the city until you have been clothed with power from on high."

How would we behave, as artists, as Christians, as citizens, if we took this Bible passage to heart? We are clothed with power from on high--but so often we forget to claim that power.
