More to explore:
In Luke 7, Jesus raises a young man from the dead in the village of Nain. Lucas Cranach the Younger--one of the primary artists of the Reformation churches--painted the funeral procession outside of Nain as if the town was in medieval Europe. Jesus, as in much medieval art, is wearing royal red, and the young man is wearing a white shroud, which reminds us of our baptismal gown. ("Auferweckung des Jünglings zu Nain" in the "City Church," Wittenberg)
Optimist: Someone who figures that taking a step backward after taking a step forward is not a disaster, its a cha-cha. -Robert Brault
