A few weeks ago I helped lead the first of our new monthly service called Encounter. As well as a vibrant worship and praise time and some opportunity for prayer ministry, I invited a friend to come and paint.
Kate Green is part of City Church in Cambridge and as well as being an acomplished artist she also does ‘prophetic art.’ Kate’s art is beautifully abstract yet carries a powerful message with it.
Kate writes this about her painting at the first encounter:
It’s about God wanting to break us out of a ‘pixelated’ existence.1. Like with a low resolution photo – He wants to give us a bigger picture of his love bringing a new sharpness and clarity of his affection and acceptance. He invites us to ‘go large’ – ask for more, believe for more, go deeper.
2. Like the computer game MINECRAFT where you create a world from pixels or boxes – maybe the life we’re living is a bit limited. Do we create our lives around our limitations? There is a new level of freedom beckoning, an invitation to step out of the box, to face the unknown, the unplanned… an awakening. Eph 3:20: ‘I ask him that with both feet planted firmly on love, you’ll be able to take in the extravagant dimensions of Christ’s love. Reach out and experience the breadth! Test its length! Plumb the depths! Rise to the heights! Live full lives, full in the fullness of God. God can do anything, you know—far more than you could ever imagine or guess or request in your wildest dreams!’3. Like in censorship where pixelating disguises someone’s identity – God wants to deepen our sense of identity in him, that we are forgiven, we are chosen, we are adopted into his family. We are children of the King of Kings.
Here is the stunning finished peice:
