If you are an early bird holiday planner, here's your chance to get a jump start on your Christmas gift giving. Our Christmas honor card was created by Fred Wood, a noted Greenville artist, Triune worshiper and art room volunteer. "Unseen Greenville" is a painting he did early during his time at Triune. At the bottom are faceless human shapes, the view that most people see as they drive along Stone Avenue. But when you come through the church, pictured at the top, those humans acquire faces -- and names: Charles, Otis and Meno. We love "Unseen Greenville" and have it prominently displayed at our Stone Avenue entrance. Now you can enjoy it as a way to honor a friend or relative by giving to Triune's work with Greenville's unseen population. Inside are these words:
A gift has been given in your honor to Triune Mercy Center.
This holiday gift will spread the joy of Jesus Christ to the homeless and hurting people Triune serves.
You may purchase the cards in our reception area at 222 Rutherford Street or by mailing in the form below. Minimum donation is $10. If you want us to address, stamp and send them, enclose your mailing list as well as the signature you want on the card, and an extra $1 per card, please. We hope you will allow these Greenvillians to be seen.
"Unseen Greenville" by Fred Wood is our Holiday Honor Card.
