Jesus was born not to change history but eternity. As Christ entered into this dark world two thousand years ago, so the Spirit enters our dark hearts today to bring His light and flourish through us. This is the great gift of an ever living and ever loving God. Even in His name there is promise- Immanuel, God With Us!
The hummingbird is romanticized in this dynamic design as it pays tribute to the vintage technique of calligraphic off-hand flourishing. Like the hummingbird, the power of the message is in its details. The entanglement of line work speaks to the essence of love in combining two separate bodies, male and female, as a unified whole. Small imperfections grafted into the symmetry establish its own perfection.

Following showmanship of past master penman, Weidmann takes the traditional calligraphic bird flourish to new heights in his hyper-realism style. This aerial North American Nuthatch soars toward the viewer with boundless ethereal motion through the vintage expression of off-hand flourishing.
In Deuteronomy (4:24), God describes himself as a Consuming Fire- a jealous God who pursues his people despite their constant rebellion against Him. God our Father is the light in the darkness; a fire burning bright who yearns for a relationship with His creation. He looks away from the viewer to show God’s inability to truly commune with His people in the Old Testament because they were cloaked in sin.
