The Reconciliation Ministry team invited  Area youth  to respond  with their  interpretation to the word   ,  Imagine.  Imagine what we could be without the actions and attitudes  that racism brings
. The youth of First Christian-Houston, led by  Ashley Juarez  did respond to the challenge and the works of art they created were absolutely incredible.  Their artwork was shared  during worship at First Christian on May 21st and an award for their participation was presented on behalf of the Reconciliation Ministry of the CPA.  During worship, each student shared their work along with a statement of inspiration for their particular work.  I share their statements below.
    ~

I was inspired to paint this because God created us without a label to the color of our skin.  Hollis Dunn

    ~ All the colors and skin tones on earth have been touched & wonderfully crafted by the same Creator.          Maggie Lytle.    

    ~ I was inspired to paint the world because . . . . racism happens all around the world, it was a very hard         battle  to fight, but yet standing tall made the difference.  Ella Phelps            

    ~ (Anthony is an amazing part of our youth group and just happens to have autism.)  He painted the #1          because  God is number One.  And Thomas, because Thomas the Train is really useful just like Christians         should be.  Anthony Rodriguez    

    ~ I painted different skin colors on one hand because we’re all united in one, no matter what our skin color is.          There is a cross in the middle because Christ is the color of all humanity.  Ella Rodriguez   

    ~ Space is such a vast concept and so is racism.  It is much more complicated that we can comprehend.  It         goes deeper than just hatred.  It is not something you are born with, it is created and it goes back over         the  ages… just like time and space,  Grace Dunn

    ~ I was inspired to paint a cross with a multicolored heart in the middle because Jesus unites us all with one         heart, one voice & one song in faith.  There is no racism in Jesus Christ because Jesus transcends all         forms of hatred.  Brisa Gailowkowski        

    ~ We may all look differently on the outside, but as one humanity we all bleed red, can hear the fierce beating         of our hearts and are able to choose love.  May God unite us as one.  Ashley Juarez 

 The student’s art is currently displayed in Knowles Hall at FCC.  I invite you to visit stop by and view their products.  It will give you hope for the future!
