I'm taking advantage of the Internet age to ask if anyone has come across this wood-carving that was part of a Gospel Book. It was used by the Brotherhood at its liturgies and stored at the friary of the Society of the Atonement, Graymoor, in Garrison New York when we were not using it. It went missing about a dozen years ago, and I thought now might be a time to ask if it has turned up anywhere. It's about 12 by 14 inches or so, carved in oak (or that color anyway), if I recall correctly, with touches of gold leaf here and there. It was my second effort at wood carving. I hope it is serving somewhere, as a Gospel Book cover or in some other sacred setting; but if anyone were to come across it, the Brotherhood would love to see it back in our use. Thanks to any for information.
"a book that honors the Word of God, the faith once delivered, and moves it into our cultural context."—The Episcopal New Yorker
"seeks to meet opponents on their own ground, assessing their arguments carefully and refuting them courteously.... The value ... lies not in its conclusions alone but chiefly in the way Haller reaches them. Whoever is charged with compiling ... resources [on same-sex relationships] will want to add this book to the list."— The Anglican Theological Review
