An English speaker’s perspective

Discover Spanish With Us


Yesterday I was inviting a man to a special meeting at our church. We are using the fact that we have applied new paint and bought new items for the church to invite the people from the neighborhood. They saw us painting the outside of the building, now we want to give them an opportunity to see what we have done to the inside.

This man said that we have “una nueva iglesia.” Then he paused and said, “No, mejor una nueva imagen.” As a Baptist, I don’t believe in worshiping idols. I almost jumped in and said that we don’t have idols in our chuch. Imagin can mean idols. Then I realized he meant a new look.

Imagen can mean a look/appearance, idol or image.
