The St. John's Bible-To the Ends of the Earth

 To the Ends of the Earth
 Acts 1:8
Donald Jackson with contributions from 
Andrew Jamieson and Sally Mae Joseph

Vellum with ink, paint and gold

"The image of the earth is a dynamic cosmos
 ilustrates the words in which Christ 
foretold the eventual spread of his teachings:
"to the end of the earth." 
This view from space...
 is based on a picture for the Hubble Space Telescope. 
The comet will remind Minnesotans 
of the Hale-Bopp comet, 
which was visible in the summer of 1997.
Showing the earth in ever-expanding space, 
together with linear geometric patterns, 
suggests both continuing evolution and ordered stability. 
The many crosses indicate the continual
 expansion of Christianity  in the world."

Lord, remind me that we must
 never be satisfied with small goals 
of making you known.
 The work is about the whole world
 hearing about your great love for them.
