Each photograph of the dance aspect of the Testimony of Touch captures my full bodied response in the creation of the piece as well as the content of the worship experience. It stands not only as a documentation but a part of the visual display of God's touch in the place of healing expressed and contemplated through the creative process of art making. The physical aspect also parallels John 1:14, "The Word became flesh and dwelt among us". As I crossed the floor and moved with paint on my hands and feet I thought of the greatest distance Christ traveled for us, He did not save us with one part of Himself but with all. He fully embodied Himself in man for our redemption and His joy.
