ART POSTER: Commentary on Art Piece

2018 Week of Prayer for Christian Unity

About the artwork…

The artwork for this year’s poster is a modified version of a stain glass window “Hand of God” from Our Lady of the Lake Church, Pocono Pines, PA.

This year’s theme points to the glorious power of God to draw people together in the desire for Christian Unity. The multiple hues around the hand represent the diversity of churches and communities of faith that seek to become one in Christ. The power of God’s hand is focused on the band of yellow light central to the image which is God’s giving of self to all people through Christ Jesus. It is to Christ that we are drawn and within the body of Christ that Church will fulfill Christ’s prayer “That All May Be One.”
