Lutheran Church of Christ the Redeemer, Minneapolis, this Advent will again worship under the work of artist and member Joe Larson, who challenged himself to convey the biblical proclamation “the word became flesh.”
Larson started painting this piece in September 2007.
Six panels were added each week in Advent until the work was completed on the final Sunday.
Larson used icons and other traditional and not-so-traditional Christmas imagery to depict John 1 and the mystery of the incarnation on the 24 two-foot panels.
