Paul's Story wire-wrap bracelet
And because of my chains, most of the brothers and sisters have become confident in the Lord and dare all the more to proclaim the gospel without fear.” Philippians 1: 13-14
Paul’s Story can be told in a circle. Beginning at the top, in purple, the Holy Trinity -God the Father, Christ the Son, and the Holy Spirit- speak the creation into being. Counterclockwise, they create the blue Heavens and the green Earth. The Holy Spirit in white is hovering over the creation like a dove. At the bottom of the circle, Satan in red - the apple, the old red dragon, one of the celestial angels- has fallen from grace. Also fallen, mankind -Adam, brown and Eve, pink- is caught between the grace of the Holy Spirit and the temptations of sin. In the full-ness of time, Christ the Son comes incarnate to the Earth. He suffers death, and is resurrected to the Father. In so doing, Christ defeats Satan and invites humanity -brown and pink- to embrace the Holy Spirit. The Book of Revelation promises a new Earth and a new Heaven as we return to The Father and His Son to complete the circle of time.
