Title: Salvation Mountain; Artist: Leonard Knight (b. 1931); Scripture: John 3:1-17, Mark 8:31-38, Luke 9:51-62

Title: Salvation Mountain; Date: 1993-2009; Artist: Leonard Knight (b. 1931); Building: Salvation Mountain; Object/Function: Mixed media; City/Town: Niland; State: CA; Country: United States; Scripture: John 3:1-17, Mark 8:31-38, Luke 9:51-62. Notes: Leonard Knight has been building Salvation Mountain for over fifteen years. Using his unique method of “splooching” to paint manmade mounds of clay and straw, Mr. Knight simply wants to spread the good news that “God is Love.” As your eye travels from the base of the mountain to its peak, you discover a multitude of images and slogans that express the complexity and comprehensiveness of God’s presence. A slogan about Jesus begins your journey up the mountain, and it concludes with a single white cross at the top that represents the risen Christ. The image of Creator God is embodied in every painted flower and tree. From doves to fruit, representations of the Holy Spirit cover generous portions of this labor of love. Very inch of Salvation Mountain represents Mr. Knight’s experience of the living God, the Trinity. Holy Trinity Sunday requires a similar labor. It is a community’s opportunity to profess and confess of God’s eternal presence. It is an occasion for the church to celebrate the living mystery that is the Trinity. Whether using the phrase Father, Son, and Holy Spirit or Creator, Redeemer, and Sustainer, we must take time to name how God is active in the communal life of faith. — Blair Tolbert.
