I’ve had some fun working with Microsoft Paint today, making the scribbles above.
Thoughts, sermons, & scribbles of a Lutheran pastor.

Recently I’ve been doing some scribbling with my watercolour pencils. Here’s what I came up with.
Adam Kraft (1440-1507), was a master Nuremberg artist-craftsperson, one of his finest works, the tabernacle, is inside St Lawrence Church, Nuremberg. He portrays himself as a kneeling servant with stonemason tools at the foot of the tabernacle. I toured this church in 2007, the tabernacle is breathtakingly beautiful!
Albrecht Dürer (1471-1528), was also a Nuremberg artist, most readers will remember his famous work “Praying hands.”
Martin Luther (1483-1546), one of my favourite theological heroes, here depicted during the time as a professor at Wittenberg, ca 1532.
John Calvin (1509-1564), the popular Geneva-based reformer.

The Holy Spirit symbolised by dove and fire are depicted here in my recent scribbles. I call them scribbles as opposed to works of art because I’m not a trained artist. I turn to scribbling as a pleasant activity, which has value in and of itself. If the finished scribble is of any significance, well it’s likely more by accident than design—perhaps the work of the creative Holy Spirit through this earthly vessel.
