For His Glory 1.0 – October 2009
Artist Statement by Bonnie Duncan Bravo 

With this body of work, I set out to bring glory to God. I used stained glass window designs to reference traditional Christian methodology and the Rhino because he is a beautiful example of Running in Faith.

The Rhino is an awesomely powerful animal that at top speed can run upwards of 30 miles per hour. Yet, he can only see 30 feet ahead! Appropriately, a group of rhinos is called a “Crash.” 

Two years ago I began to tag my work with the slogan “Dream with Faith,” because I believe that our personal desires (Dreams) should be motivated by our religious beliefs (Faith). James, 2:17 states that “Faith by itself, if not accompanied by action, is dead.” Over the past two years, as a follower of Jesus Christ I have aimed to have “Faith like the Rhino.” 

My husband, Omar, and I were recently called to the ghettos of Costa Rica to do mission work with 6:8 Ministries. Everyday we see children who are starving for food and love, men held captive by drug addiction, women shattered by prostitution, and families who can’t stay dry because their tin roof won’t hold water. In the midst of being witness to these desperate conditions, we were called to quit our jobs, move away from home, and try to help. 

Though we can’t see very far ahead of us, we’re Running forward in Faith because we believe that God has a plan.

dream with faith

Delight yourself in the Lord and He will give you the desires of your heart. -Psalms 37:4
