Story Behind the Art
I am grateful for the emphasis that Pastor Woody put on Scripture memory. As a church, we memorized passages, including John 15. This verse was lettered for the bulletin cover to aid in memorization.
I am the vine, you are the branches. He who abides in Me, and I in him, bears much fruit; for without Me you can do nothing.
