Artists: Philip Beeby & Ryoko Mishima
Title: One Body with Many Parts
Materials: Acrylic on Canvas
Artist Statement: We wanted to express ‘1 Corinthians 12: 12-31’. Christ is like a single body which has many parts: it is still one body, even though it is made up of different parts. In the same way all of us, whether Jews or Gentiles, whether slaves or free, have been baptized into the one body by the same spirit, and we have all been given the one spirit to drink.
…All of you are Christ’s body, and each one is a part of it.
Everyone is very important.
