"On The Wings Of A Dove" ~ ( 2002) Communion table piece continues the theme of the pulpit hanging ( 1998), which can be viewed either as a symbolic vine with growing leaves representing Jesus' genealogy  or as the advent candle flames. 

Advent stoles ~ ( 1998 & 2002) gentle lines carry the illumination of the candlelight upward. The anticipation of the season is represented by the progression of royal purple to pure white.
