New Wall Hanging This Chinese wall hanging is one of four added to the permanent art collection at the Church of the Good Shepherd, United Church of Christ. Painted by a Chinese refugee in Hong Kong, the hangings depict the story of the Good Shepherd. The one above shows neighbors rejoicing with the shepherd who has found his lost sheep. It is traditional in many churches, both Protestant and Catholic, to read the Biblical story of the Good Shepherd on the second Sunday after Easter, and this custom will be followed at the local church. Interested persons may view the wall hangings at the church, 2145 Independence Blvd, at any time.
