(Hal Weicht, one of my friends from the earliest days of my ministry, recently sent me this e-mail about the “Come Unto Me” sculpture. I was really moved by this sculpture. The comfort that it gives is palpable. A picture is worth a thousand words, and this picture really works. I hope it touches your heart as it touched mine.)
The “Come Unto Me” bronze sculpture took more than a year to make its first appearance. Unveiled in 2000, the original life-sized bronze monument stands in the grand foyer of the Spilsbury Mortuary in St. George Utah.
It has become a scenic attraction, in addition to a comfort to countless families at a most tender time of their lives. It portrays the spiritual journey from mortality to immortality: an aged woman’s body, returning to its prime, and back to the arms of our Savior.
Death is not the end. We all have an eternal destiny, as “Come Unto Me” portrays .
