We colour our heart


Coloured hearts, Mark A Hewitt 2012

Coloured paper squares were poured then mixed in a basket during the call to worship. The more adgile children of God took these pieces of paper and laminated them & cut them into hearts in the middle of the worship space during the service. They were then given to all present in exchange for their prayer for others written on another but larger coloured square. Pentecost 23 Yr B

Cups, pots & kettles

Cups, pots & kettles. Mark A Hewitt 2012

Cups, pots & kettles ready to be washed. Jesus ministry and teaching was deep and meaningful yet his critics  kept with small minded things like the washing of cups, pots and kettles. Things have not changed as we are often caught up dealing with small minded issues when we are dealing with the big questions of life. Mk 7:4.
Mark 7:1-8,14-15, 21-23.   Pentecost 14 Yr B

Wisdom

God’s wisdom: Know what is right, do what is right. Pastel & Pencil, Mark A Hewitt 2012

God’s wisdom underlies all. It may be overlooked or hard to see. Our task is to discern & know what is right, then do what is right.
