PAINTING PICTURES OF THE LOST

A Bishop Tucker of Uganda was an artist, but how did he become a bishop? One day he was painting a picture of a poor woman, holding a baby, wandering homeless on a stormy night on the dark, deserted street.

As the picture grew, the artist suddenly threw down his brush, exclaiming, "Instead of merely painting a picture of a lost soul, I will go out and save them." And he went to Africa.

(From a sermon by Steve Shepherd, "In the Face of Human Suffering," 2/3/2010)
