Church Dedicates “Tree of Life” Mosaic

The mosaic was put together over a six-month period

MOORHEAD, Minn. — Churches United for the Homeless presented its “Tree of Life” mosaic, which is in a center where people of any religion can go to worship.

Two dozen volunteers put together the mosaic over a six month period. They put in over 300 hours of service.

Pastor Joe Larson of St. Mark’s Lutheran Church designed it. The art piece features a tree, which represents renewal, and the Red River, which runs through the landscape.

“It’s meant to be a symbol of life, where trees grow, and they replenish every year with leaves dying and regrowing. Faith can be like that, where during our lives, things die and pass away and renew,” Pastor Joe Larson with St. Mark’s Lutheran Church, said.

The dedication also featured multicultural foods for people to enjoy.
