About the Art
Welcome Home is imaginatively set in the mountains around our home town, and tells the story of people of all ages, stages and ethnicities finding fellowship and home at God’s table.
Welcome Home also expresses our yearning as a church to live with such warmth and joy that even the furthest out from the table are surprisingly pulled into friendship and communion with God and his people.
Carol Aust created this work specifically for First Pres Boulder and gave it to us as a gift. It was installed in our Sanctuary November 18, 2018.
