I don't know why, but it seems that I am into art this fall. First, it was the St. John's Bible, art that is being created right in front of us. Now, it's "Images of the Prodigal Son", a collection by a man named Jerry Evenrud. The collection is now on display at the museum of Biblical Art in New York (which I didn't even know existed.) There is also available a book of images and essays by former Luther Seminary Pastor Robert Brusic.
This Sunday Pastor Brusic will be coming to our adult forum to share some of the images and his thoughts with us.
I hope that it is yet another way for us to "get into" the Bible, and discover all the facets of this great parable.
