Ted Ahl

This kneeler based on a Richard Morris tile design shows a grapevine with clusters of grapes and grape leaves with the words in Swedish :  Jag är det sanna vinträdet—I am the True Vine,  John 15:1.  The kneeler honors my father, Ernst Teodor Ahl,  his sister, Anna, and his two brothers, John and Gustav, half of the family that came to this country from Sweden early in the last century.  They are remembered as critical contributors to my spiritual journey which has led me to All Souls and my life in this community.  I worked the kneeler in wool, silk and metallic threads.
