The painting is entitled “Sintram and His Mother” by Louisa Starr, who was a British painter. I’m looking up who this Sintram is, but at this point, it’s still a mystery to me.

ETA:

Found this:

The Creepy Christmas Story of Sintram and his Companions

After reading Undine, by Friedrich de la Motte Fouqué, I moved on to the next de la Motte Fouqué novella, Sintram and His Companions. I read the 1845 volume that includes both stories, with an introduction by Charlotte Yonge, the same edition that Jo wants for Christmas in the first chapter of Little Women. It makes sense that Jo would want this book for Christmas, because Sintram is a Christmas story. But it’s not about a cozy, comforting Christmas like the one in Little Women. It’s about a series of bleak, demon-haunted Christmases celebrated by Vikings in the icy mountains of Norway.

… It’s the story of Sintram, the son of a brutal knight and a saintly nun, who spends his life torn between those two influences. Sometimes Sintram gives in to his violent side and joins his father in burning and pillaging villages; at other times he is overwhelmed by guilt and spends his time in solitary prayer, and it’s not clear which side will win out.

I’ve never seen Father, Son, and Holy Spirit, and Mary standing on the Globe like this. It’s beautiful and powerful, so glad you posted it.

I love that one too. So much theology conveyed in that one image.

Another one I’ve never seen before, and will save. Might need a new ink cartridge…

Churches that are modern like this


are pretty ugly.

I found it on pinterest but unfortunately when I clicked on the “visit site” button it said item was no longer available. It really is gorgeous. We always had plastic ones too but I got tired of filling them up due to evaporation so we just have bottles for everyone’s bedrooms.


#321

Well thank-you for going to the trouble of looking. And thanks for posting it.


#322

Sorry, I don’t agree with that assessment. The above church is gorgeous. I love the wood and the expansive windows! Wow!


#323

Be inspired by Jesus!
