We spent a wonderful couple of hours at a Norman Rockwell exhibit today. We all have seen so much of his work over the years that really I don’t have to comment a lot about the art … you have your opinion already, either for, against, or snarky.
So instead of commenting on the art, I’ll comment on a Rockwell collector’s comment about the art. George Lucas, whose personal collection of Rockwell is currently on display at The Smithsonian American Art Museum, says of Rockwell that the compassion displayed in his art makes him seem like a Buddhist.
What a sad statement about all of the Christians George Lucas has ever met.
Be completely humble and gentle; be patient, bearing with one another in love. (Eph. 4:2)
Does Christianity deserve to have lost its reputation for compassion?
