The Good Samaritan

The Good Samaritan

Dedication: December 3, 2006
Donors: Jeff, Sadie and Nicole Forchelli
Artist: Nikki Vogt

Upper Scene (Luke 12:30-37): A Samaritan jeopardizes his own well-being by aiding someone considered “not of his kind.” He
shows genuine compassion for one whom most would consider not worth the trouble and inconvenience. The upper-left section
depicts a priest moving down the road with his back to the scene. The Levite, however, gazes over his shoulder, contemplating this act of mercy.

Lower Scene (Revelation 3:20): Jesus knocks at the door of our hearts, asking us to acknowledge and accept His total love for us. Will we be open to hear His message and welcome Him in? The lantern is symbolic of Christ as “the light of the world.”
