This art piece by Cornelia Parker was created from the charred remains of a Southern Black Baptist Church destroyed by arsonists.
There is beauty here, each charcoaled fragment a girder of praise miraculously risen from the rubble.
Pendant pieces of resurrection; once sheltering a family of worshipers and housing a home for hearts that desired to draw closer to God.
Fire, at the hand of man, sought to destroy it all.
Yet fire could not destroy the home of praise that lived in the heart of each believer.
No fire ever can.
When you walk through the fire of oppression, you will not be burned up; the flames will not consume you. Isaiah 43:2 NLT
I will make my home among them. I will be their God, and they will be my people. Ezekiel 37:27 NLT
Praying for God to crown you with beauty today.
To all who mourn in Israel, he will give a crown of beauty for ashes, a joyous blessing instead of mourning, festive praise instead of despair. Isaiah 61:3 NLT
