The Mural by Jeffry R. Halverson
“He cut away the insignificant and incidental. Those bits were tossed

“It portrayed motherhood as the highest position that a woman could achieve. For God had made Mary neither a prophet nor the messiah nor the daughter of God. Nor did God take the form of a woman.
