10/5/2011 St John’s College Communion service. Preacher: Rev Canon Robert Warren
Scripture:- Ruth 2 & Matthew 5:1-16
The image is based upon the whole of the service – the worship songs, the scriptures, the sermon and the communion. It is also influenced by the ‘Cardboard Testimonies’ I have seen recently on YouTube. The idea came from the contrast of the Matthew reading of the before & after along with the sermon which was looking at what Ordained Christian ministry should consist of and the main thrust seemed to be about helping Churches become positive, welcoming, caring communities of faith and love.For me the most important thing about being Church is recognising that without Jesus Christ we would be lost, confused, sick & broken people crushed under the weight of religion. But Christ sets us free from the dominion of darkness and brings us into the kingdom of light and we are found, healed, made whole and filled with his peace and joy.
