"The Preachers chiefly shall take heed that they teach nothing in their preaching, which they would have the people religiously to observe and believe, but that which is agreeable to the Doctrine of the Old Testament and the New, and that which the Catholick Fathers and Ancient Bishops have gathered out of that Doctrine." A proposed canon of Elizabeth I, 1571

It is finished!

Well, almost. I still have to put the "clear coat" finish on the icon of our Savior and the Theotokos that I have been painting for the last two months under the tutelage of master iconographer Jane Ladik. The clear coat finish will be applied later this week, but the painting is done. It turned out far better than I ever would have thought, to be honest, thanks to Jane's excellent instruction and the intervention of the Holy Spirit. To God be the glory!

Hey Father, sorry I wasn't able to come down with Laura. She was glad to see you. Hopefully we can catch up when I go there in Feb. for Harold's wedding.

I love the icon. I had no idea you had this kind of talent. You never spoke of it before. Maybe I should have you write an icon of St. Andrew if I ever am ordained. I hope your ministry is going well.

Miss you friend!

Thanks to all for the kind words. The icon will go in my classroom. I hope the kids are as kind in their assessments as you have been!
