Drawn to the Word
This Palm Sunday, March 20, 2016, we had a special guest at our 9 and 11 am services.
Artist and Pastor Paul Oman painted the above renderings during both worship services. Each painting will be displayed at Holy Trinity.
Paul Oman, artist and pastor, shares his Drawn to the Word artistic ministry with audiences ecumenically across the country. He served as science teacher, then Lutheran pastor when, in 2011, he took up work as an artistic pastor full-time. Paul seeks to give new vision to God’s Word by using the process of painting to captivate audiences in our visually oriented culture. Painting and drawing have been a part of Paul’s life since childhood. Receiving international recognition in 2010 and 2013 for his work in watercolor, Paul uses this gift to proclaim the Gospel in a unique and powerful way that impacts lives and inspires mission. The larger-than-life sized murals are painted with acrylics. Paul lives near Amery, Wisconsin with his wife, Jana, and their children, Tommy, Kelsey, and Emily.
