This month, we began a new preaching series in the book of 1 John. We commissioned one of our members, Anthony Lam, to paint a piece of artwork to accompany the series. This is his painted work and some words he used to express the meaning behind it.
“Stark Contrast. Tension. Light and Dark. Rigid Lines. Imminence. These are some of the stronger, thematic visual cues that pervade the text of 1 John. The piece is a meditation on these themes and their interaction within the broader space defined by the author of the text. A deeply personal and tactile dimensionality mirrors the opening text – ‘what we have seen with our eyes… what we have touched with our hands.”
