CHICAGO, IL (April 13, 2007) – Following are examples of artwork that is increasingly finding its way into the worship experiences of many Covenant churches.

Easter - one This paper banner was created for the Lindsborg Covenant Church “Sermon on the Mount” series by church member Shelly Carlson. Made of paper, the words of the Lord’s Prayer around the edge provide a frame for the rest of the text.
Photographs were used by the Paxton Covenant Church to powerfully illustrate the first word of the last seven words of Jesus. Different photos show how hands can be misused – such as “This hand drinks too much …” or “This hand hurt someone,” using the vivid image of a clenched fist – concluding with the outstretched hand on a cross, “This hand forgave them all …” the collection was created by Richard Lichlyter-Klein. Easter - two
Easter - three This image from the cross was used by the Paxton Covenant Church to illustrate the fourth word in the seven last words of Jesus presentation.
This image of a vase laying on its side was used at Paxton to illustrate the fifth word – “I thirst” – as part of the seven last words of Jesus presentation during Holy Week. The image was created by Rhianna Adkins. Easter - four
Easter - five The wisp of candle smoke captures the idea of one’s spirit being committed to the care of the Heavenly Father – illustrating the last of the seven final words of Jesus used in the Paxton presentation. Corbin Siddall created this interpretive photograph.
