RELIGIOUS ART | NEWS OF WEEK

ALPHA OMEGA ARTS
By Tahlib, Seeker of Truth
What does this Father's Day mean to us? It means that one day, our 28-year-old son will make us grandparents to his black son or daughter. That one day we will show that child how to say their daily prayers, to love those who are different, and to experience art as messages from God. It also means we will teach them the joy of sharing those gifts in church every Sunday. That is why, on this Father's Day that Curtis Compton's photograph of a young girl holding roses (above) in front of Emanuel AME Church in Charleston, S.C. is our NEWS OF WEEK.
