Come, to the love of Christ

Yiyi Zhang

An intimate space and a window into the lives of Christians from different traditions whose stories shared a touch of joy and sorrow, a struggle of faith and doubt, yet, embraced by a love of Christ.


This installation was a part of HEAR & NOW: An Interactive Oral History Exhibitshowcasing multimedia projects and stories recorded by the 2017 cohort of Columbia University’s Oral History MA program.


If you are not a Christian, have you wondered why there are still Christians in the 21st Century? If you are a Christian, have you tried to understand other Christian traditions?
Allow me to introduce you my friends and give them some time to take you on their spiritual journeys.
From Asia to Europe to Africa.
From Protestant to Catholic to Orthodox to Anglican
With joy and sorrow
With faith and doubt
Covered by love
