Bridging the Torn Places
Medium: Fabric (quilted, cut, and re-stitched)


Separations occur by ignorance, intent, or accident. Awareness and acknowledgement of those splits is a first step in building bridges that overcome those divisions. Renewal is a cooperative event using strength provided by the grace of God, others, and ourselves. Lent can be a reminder that we all may become stronger in the broken places when we step forward and actively seek to reclaim the unity God chooses for us.
