The Beauty of Fall: Photo Shoot

By Sarah Komisky

Sometimes you need to see something in a new light to revisit the beauty of it. The Bible is full of scriptures that give thanks to God and we at Marked Ministry, wanted to behold them in a new and fresh way. This November, we are taking a look at them through the Message translation while also honoring the legacy of Bible translator, Eugene Peterson. Additionally, we hope these photos encapsulates all that the autumn season has to offer. My mom and I were able to go to some really fun locations. With my mom’s camera in hand, she was able to document the beauty we experienced together and that surrounded us at different times (and we are so thankful for our times together!) In turn, we want to share our photos with you and hope these rustic images capture the color, texture, and essence of fall as you are encouraged by God’s Word. Enjoy.
