A wall of colorful art greets patients at Adult Outpatient Rehabilitation Services on the Methodist Le Bonheur Germantown Hospital campus.

The colorful squares that local elementary students painted during last year’s National Day of Service were recently put together and hung to create a vibrant mural for Adult Outpatient Rehabilitation Services on the campus of Methodist Le Bonheur Germantown Hospital.

Each block represents a Fruit of the Spirit from Galatians 5:22-23 including joy, patience, love, peace, and kindness. “I picked the Fruits of the Spirit scripture because when all these blocks are assembled together they represent working together for God and using the gifts he has given us to make a difference and everyone of us can make a difference,” said Scarlett Marsh, a fifth grade teacher at New Hope Christian Academy.

Along with fifth graders from New Hope Christian Academy, students from Grace St. Luke’s Episcopal School, St. George’s Independent School, and St. Mary’s Episcopal School all put paintbrushes to canvas to create the expressive artwork that now adds a kaleidoscope of color to greet patients and inspire them as they work to heal.
