Augie Art Tour 1c – Our Savior’s Lutheran – Fellowship Hall

After saying hi to the wood panel triptych in the foyer, move on to the other side to see the fellowship hall.

The raised roof of this section allows for a flood of light, giving it a welcoming feel. Holding up the ceiling are twelve pillars designed as trees. The number twelve is important, as it represents both the twelve tribes of Israel and the twelve disciples, both representing fellowship. The trees represent the gentiles who have been ‘grafted’ onto the tree of Israel, as is written in Romans:

Romans 11:17,18 (ESV)
17 Now if some of the branches have been broken off, and you, a wild olive branch, have been grafted in their place to share the rich root of the olive tree, 18 do not boast about being better than the other branches. If you boast, remember that you do not support the root, but the root supports you.
