This is pretty much what the painting looked liked all four services. Chris spoke and did a killer job talking about how we need to lay off the pressure of feeling like we need to describe everything about Jesus in 12 minutes….. That maybe we should spend our time being a blessing to the nations like God commissioned Abraham to be, and to be present with people and be a blessing to them in their lives. This is more the work of Jesus.
It was a great talk.
As for the painting…. It came to be 20 minutes before I had to paint it.
There is a theology of numbers in the Bible and the “7” is the God number – standing for completeness and shalom. So we see all these God moments coming into a persons life that grows them in the midst of a community. It’s not just one, but many moments that grow our faith, increase our understanding, change us in the long term.
