In September, 2013, when the Whole People, Holy People initiative began, we commissioned local artist Chad Elliott to paint something for us that would be a visual symbol, a reminder, of our call to holistic ministry.
Elliott said this about his painting: "There is a calm and comforting feeling that arises within each of us when we begin to work together on the path towards Christ. We are connected to a universal truth, both individually and as a whole, when we offer each other assistance, guidance and love as one growing community. I pray that this image of 'Whole People, Holy People' may serve as a reminder of this truth for each individual within this community."
The painting features a bur oak tree which is common in the region, chosen for its strength to withstand prairie winds and fires and its deep roots, along with people helping each other up a hill to the cross, by way of the bur oak.
