Threads of Grace

Mary Steenwyk's avatar Mary Steenwyk

Threads of Grace Artists Notes: This sculpture Is a celebration, refection, and a challenge. Lives are wound together through a variety of threads; experiences, emotions, words/tweets, music, pictures, and relationships. Celebration happens as people and cultures are beautifully drawn closer together through these threads. Jesus’ self-sacrifice, His grace, is reflected as people serve each other to meet physical and spiritual needs. His grace challenges us to think beyond ourselves and reach out to others.
