Jesus Walks

This multi media piece, "Jesus Walks" was created in 2009 using watercolors, ink, and paper cuttings.

In sitting with lunch with a close friend, in the uninhibited smile of a little child, in the moment I feel like throwing in the towel and don't because somewhere, somehow there he is and there is hope. "...and he tells me I am his own." Even when I fail, even when I'm not sure who I am or where I'm to go next - I am my beloved's and he is mine... and he, walks with me. T.L. Eastman 2011

Wednesday June 1st : God I pray a blessing and energy to the individuals working to assemble the pieces of Convo, YA'll and the Assembly 2011.

Friday June 3rd: God I pray for all the youth and young adults on their way to Rochester for CONVO and Ya'll. May this Convo be a tru
