For today’s faith lesson, I’m sharing this post by my friend, Judy, from her blog, Kindling.
NOTE: This painting, Shipwreck in a Storm, by Willem van Diest, is in the public domain. The accompanying notes in Wikipedia read:
“Van Diest’s seascapes are full of vivid details, for example, the figures clinging to the wreckage as ships break up in a violent storm. Protestant sermons and popular literature urged the Dutch to see moral lessons in nature and everyday life. Whether a shopkeeper or ship owner, someone seeing such a painting in a home might well reflect upon the soul on its journey through a life fraught with dangers.”
