creatives at work: open home open year

(For theological/liturgical rationale go here)

As part of our open home, open year service, I asked 3 of our creatives to paint throughout the service. Each one took one side of our “building the Kingdom house” which had been covered with white paper in preparation. As the powerpoint rolled, as testimonies were shared (story after story of community impact), as 2 sermonettes were preached, as prayer was uttered and worship given, they expressed visually what they were hearing.

After the service they then stepped back and looked at each other’s work. This is what they saw:

The best moment was during the last song, when Sam, 2 years old, ran inside the house, turned to face one of the artists, and waved. Boy and artist just grinned at each other. That’s what God’s doing through us at Opawa – creating places of colour and safety in which generations engage. It’s such a privilege to be part of it.
