"Rising From the Fire" (2016) by Philip Campbell
Color makes a statement during these weeks since Easter, most noticeably today on Pentecost Sunday. The Easter season is 50 days long, with the Feast of Pentecost, the coming of the Holy Spirit (Acts 2:1-13), marking its fiery end. Indianapolis-based artist Philip Campbell captures that Spirit in "Rising From the Fire," a 2016 painted wood block carving. When Christians embrace the color red on Pentecost Sunday, we do more than just remember a past event. We celebrate a living reality in which God rises like fire inside his people. But then again, sometimes red is just red.
