"Hidden Identity" addresses the issue of being in the world but not of the world.
The setting is an imagining of the idea of being a stranger or alien in this world from Hebrews 11:13 that says: “All these people were still living by faith when they died. They did not receive the things promised; they only saw them and welcomed them from a distance, admitting that they were foreigners and strangers on earth.” The saint is surrounded by an earthly landscape, yet her hair is of made of the ’heavens.’ Her halo has turned into a life sustaining space helmet.
Depending on our spiritual life to sustain us and help us navigate our journey in this world will bring us peace.
