Great News at Wineskins

I have some great news to share with you! Heather Heflin Hodges is now on board with Wineskins as our newest Featured Author! Heather brings so many talents to the table and I cannot wait for you to benefit from all that she is going to share here at and at her new site –

Feel free to Favorite or Bookmark her site, subscribe to new posts, or do whatever you do when you find good content because that is what you are going to find on her blog.

Heather is off to a great start on her new site. Her first three posts highlight some of her art illustrating the three “Losts” of Luke 15.

Lost Valuables: Part 1

Lost Valuables: Part 2

Lost Valuables: Part 3

She has followed those posts up with A Renaissance of the Arts for Churches of Christ , Where are the Artists? and Art and Aesthetics in the Stone-Campbell Movement.

It is time Churches of Christ found a home for our artistic people and that we reclaim the gifts of those who have long gone neglected in our fellowship. Heather is going to help us understand how to do that in her articles and her art. I am very hopeful that this is just a start into something beautiful in our congregational life and ministry. So follow along with me and be blessed.
