Emmanuel Lutheran Church commissioned local artist David Freeman to do a series of wall hangings in woodwork based on the seasons of the Church Year. David is a luthier in residence and founder of Timeless Instruments in Tugaske, SK. With his great skill in working with wood David put his talents to develop three pieces for the church foyer which will reflect the cycle of the life of Christ. The first piece for Lent/Easter was installed on Ash Wednesday, the beginning of Lent. This piece brings out the themes of prayer, servanthood, strength in temptation, and Easter victory in Christ. The next piece for the Pentecost season will be installed on Pentecost Sunday - May 23. The final piece will be ready for the Advent/Christmas season next Fall. All works will be done with various types of wood molded and joined together to produce a striking display to reflect basic Christian beliefs focused on the actions of Jesus Christ.
