(85 inches wide by 96 inches high by 6 inches deep)
Let justice roll down like water,
and righteousness like an ever-flowing stream.
This mixed-media design is a contemporary, abstract interpretation of a waterfall, inspired by the longing ingredient in the lament of the prophet Amos (articulated above). The design could also be interpreted as referencing the incarnational waters of Jesus’ birth (when justice and righteousness took on human form and took up residence among humankind) or to the waters of baptism (through which we enter into God’s family and are sent out to do God’s work in the world). These varied interpretations point to the congregation’s ongoing commitment to ministries of justice, righteousness, and compassion. The design was executed in jewel-toned batik and metallic lamé fabrics. It employs a wooden installation structure.
