Anyway, the reason I stumbled across him is I was doing a little research into our Founding Fathers when the painting to your right popped up. Apparently the blogosphere is all abuzz with folks who are angry or offended that McNaughton portrayed Jesus in the midst of such great figures of our American heritage as if He was guiding them along the path we find ourselves on.
Arguments regarding the painting aside, this masterpiece speaks volumes to me about the workings of God in my life as an American. Throughout our existence, we've nodded our heads in prayer, acknowledged the bounty of God in all we were blessed with, and saw His Face in our fellow man. As a result, God truly did shed His Grace on us.
It seems we've lost our way in recent times, and as a result, we are turning away from those Graces which were once so vastly poured out to us.
My prayer is that we once more see the Face of God in our fellow man, bow our heads in prayer, and offer thanks and appreciation for His copious Blessings.
