Triptych, Side Altar, St. Paul’s Episcopal Church by the Russian painter Gouri Ivanov-Rinov (d. 1966). Ivanov-Rinov’s depiction of Mark 9, and Jesus’ command to “let the little children” come to him, emphasizes not only the vulnerability and smallness of children amongst their larger peers in society, but also Jesus’ openness to social outcasts and those marginalized in his society.
