Each day this week, I am planning to post a new image in a series of “I Am” statements from the book of John. They will be listed both as individual packages and as a complete series at the end.
This Easter season, we join Jesus as he prepares to return home to heaven. Jesus had entered our world to carry our sins to the cross and open heaven by rising from the dead. On Easter morning, he accomplished his mission. By his resurrection, he brought us into a new family and promised us a forever home through faith in him. Listen to Jesus as he tells us about this new home, this new family, this new life. Jesus gives us the keys to the house, teaches us everything we need to know about how to operate in this household, and promises to keep us safe until we make it home. Whether you have a happy home life now, or are desperately longing for the day when you meet Jesus at the end of the journey, this series is for you. It’s a long journey. Let’s travel together. Join us, we’re going home.

Based on the Gospel lessons during the season of Easter.
This summer at Good Shepherd, we will explore the basics of the Christian faith by studying the book of Romans. In Romans, the gospel is so clearly revealed. The good news that God has restored a relationship with his fallen people is showcased throughout the book. Romans takes us back to the basics of Christianity and yet presents us with deep concepts to wrestle with. What is atonement, righteousness, reconciliation? What does this mean in my relationships with the people around me? What does this say about my relationship with God? Each week we will look at a different good news concept that is highlighted in that reading from Romans. God's Word will give us the comfort, strength, and hope that we need... one word at a time.
Corissa and I hope that the corresponding artwork can be a blessing for your ministry as you share the beautiful basics of the Christian faith this summer, one word at a time.

The juxtaposition of modern techy art tools and traditional ink and paper is my latest art study. I tend to move from one media to the next, and this seems natural after years of architecture studio (sketchbook to computer and back again.) Although a cute stylus and Penultimate are fun toys, and syncing sketch concepts with tidy client notebooks in Evernote is handy, there are some things a pen and paper can do for me that a computer never will. I enjoy the timelessness of sketches, a folksier aesthetic, and a break from the screen.
