An epiphany breaks us out of our former mind-set. Jeremy Botts’s The Sun Speaks/The Stars Teach is expansiveness made visible. Energetic red brushwork is laid over a grid structure of circles, stars and crosses. This image evokes for me the term creative disequilibrium—the dynamic that makes evolution possible. Is it not the same dynamic that is still transforming the world through Jesus’ radical teachings of love, inclusion and justice for all?
