ARTWORK
Today our faith and religion “develop” as every individual’s economy grows dramatically. The understanding of the divine then begins to shift to the more physical and material realms. As it happens, having a place of prayer or worship becomes an indication of the “strength” of one’s faith and belief in God. It is in spite of drawing oneself closer to the Almighty through prayer, which can already turn on our “light” of faith in life. A place is only a means in which we devote ourselves to God. God is not here, but up there.
GOD is above
