Station #9

In considering this art show and theme, I was drawn to this piece I created about 20 years ago and inspired by Laguna beach artist Scott Moore. In this piece, a businessman is trapped inside a Boggle cube (the letters spell out “reconciliation)  on a table with pads of papers from local realtors and 3 coins.

How do we “reconcile” the way we use our money and the ways of God? Do our riches keep us trapped from others? How does reconciliation intersect with the cross?

“For while we were still weak, at the right time Christ died for the ungodly. Indeed, rarely will anyone die for a righteous person—though perhaps for a good person someone might actually dare to die. But God proves his love for us in that while we still were sinners Christ died for us. Much more surely then, now that we have been justified by his blood, will we be saved through him from the wrath of God. For if while we were enemies, we were reconciled to God through the death of his Son, much more surely, having been reconciled, will we be saved by his life. But more than that, we even boast in God through our Lord Jesus Christ, through whom we have now received reconciliation.” – Romans 5:6-11
