More on To The Rescue

Just found my notes from the original presentation of this painting and want to post it here:

If you look closely you will see:

The Storm, a lighthouse, water, Harbor with Dock, Wrecked ship, lifeboat.

The understanding we came to in this discussion.
Representations:
The Storm is the World we live in

Lighthouse: The Holy Ghost

Water: Satan

Harbor with Dock: Safety /the Gospel

Ships: All Families

Ships at the Dock: Those converted in the Gospel

Lifeboats: Saints who save the One

Wrecked ship: destroyed families who fall away from the Gospel.

Women and children on shore: Visiting Teachers who encourage us

Very interesting analogy by President Monson.
