Do Not Be Afraid! God is with us!
During the season of advent, people in our Salem community have colored individual pieces of this mosiac to create a beautiful mural on display in the church windows. We celebrate this wonderful representation of our community - a collection of beautiful, imperfect, loved children of God. And we celebrate God's loving message: Do Not Be Afraid!
A colorful mural of 38 individual colored pieces of paper in a rectangle. There are two spots missing in the bottom right corner. In the center, it says "Do Not Be Afraid", in each corner, there is a message from God to God's people:
"Do not be afraid, Zechariah, for your prayer has been heard."
"Joseph, son of David, do not be afraid to wed Mary."
"Do not be afraid Mary, for you have found favor with God."
"Do not be afraid, for see I am bringing good news of great joy."
