Artistic change

When Christ Our Redeemer Lutheran Church, Temple Terrace, Fla., closed its school due to decreasing enrollment, it contracted with a charter school for learning disabled high school students to use its building. Since all religious symbols must be removed or covered during school hours, a member who is a carpenter built a case and an artist painted it (think triptychs of medieval Christian art). Now when school is in session there’s a Florida nature scene on the case; when opened, there’s a cross and panels depicting baptism and communion.
