I seek to create photographs that awaken wonder, helping myself and others see ordinary things in unique, beautiful ways and to feel surprise, joy, and hope. In the busyness of life, we can get so overwhelmed, inward-focused, and disenchanted that we do not feel connected to something greater than ourselves. When we can’t see our place in an unfolding story, we are not vibrant contributors to society. However, when we are moved by wonder, ordinary becomes extraordinary and impossible becomes possible.
This particular piece is a collection of photos of church friends, each inhabiting a vastly different landscape from the other. Yet we are all called to be ready, standing firm, well-equipped to face adversity with the message of peace. God takes our ordinary and makes it extraordinary by showing us the way from impossible to possible.
As followers of Christ, the One who is bringing together all things in peace, we choose good shoes, those that work best in our daily landscapes. We go out as individuals, but serve as a community with readiness, standing firm against unseen forces and ready to proclaim the gospel of peace.
