Love God. Love Your Neighbor.
Middle Schoolers Paint and Reflect
Art Workshop happens every year over the MEA break. Banyan middle schoolers work with artist Anne Brink to create their own canvas and a group banner for Banyan.
Brian has this to say about his painting: "My painting represents neighbors saying hi to one another. Neighbors being nice to each other. To me, ‘Love God, Love Your Neighbor’ means being kind and doing something good for your neighbors. This is something I am trying to do with my neighbors. I included a quote from Clemantine Wamariya in my painting: 'We
are all neighbors. Be kind. Be gentle.'"
“‘Love the Lord your God with all your heart and with all your soul and with all your mind and with all your strength.’ The second is this ‘Love your neighbor as yourself.’ There is no commandment greater than these.” Mark 12:30-31 (NIV)
The complete collection goes on tour around the metro and is displayed at churches and workplaces. If you are interested in coordinating an installation of the collection, please contact us
