From the artist:

The events of 2020 have made me keenly aware of the brokenness of humanity. We can’t seem to see past ourselves, neglecting our neighbor and undoing creation. We repeat past patterns, and the low moments of history keep echoing again and again. We point fingers, shrug responsibility, and we turn our back on God, widening the chasm between this world and the coming Kin-dom. God’s frustration and disappointment are palpable in this text: “a covenant that they broke, though I was their husband (v.32).” I think it’s important to sit with that for a bit. God has gifted us everything—our lives, this wonderful world—and we can be so forgetful and ungrateful. 

Despite humanity’s constant breaking of covenants, God continues to seek reconciliation and pours out grace upon grace. Why not let this grace transform us? It is in receiving God’s grace, responding in gratitude, and offering grace to others that God forms us into who we were made to be. God saves us from ourselves, writing the way on our hearts, and gives us unlimited chances to get it right. It’s clear we can’t keep the covenant on our own, so God steps in, offering and fulfilling the covenant at once. What a gift!

In this image, I drew an anatomical heart with the words, “I will be their God, and they shall be my people.” The heart is surrounded by covenantal imagery—including the stars imaging the vastness of Abraham’s descendants, the parted seas on the journey to the land flowing with milk and honey, and the rainbow signaling God’s promise to all of creation. It creates a beautiful kaleidoscope of stories that define our pilgrimage with God. The common thread throughout these narratives is that when we mess up, God is ready with a promise, again and again.
