Altar Angels

Two hand-carved linden wood angels now hang above our altar.  They formerly were in a Lutheran Church in Milwaukee, Wisconsin, which was closed. These beautiful works of art would have been lost, but they were salvaged and became available to us. Through a generous memorial gift from Betty Roth and the Roth family, in memory of Bill Roth, they have been purchased and restored. They were, thankfully, shipped in time to be in place for our 2017 Easter celebrations. The German craftsman who did the restoration stated that the cost of producing such work today would have been prohibitive.

According to I Kings 6:23-28, at God’s directive, two cherubim were placed above the tabernacle in the temple, with wings touching. Of course, in the New Testament, angelic messengers present at the tomb proclaimed the Easter Gospel, announcing Jesus’ resurrection (Luke 24:4-5). Angels are prominent at critical junctures in the history of salvation, including Jesus’ birth at Bethlehem and his ascension into Heaven.

May these beautiful additions to our sanctuary be a blessing to many for years to come.
A special “thank you” to the Roth family and also the Bartholomews for covering the cost of crating and shipping.
