This image was not created in a worship service but came about as I reflected on the ordination process. I wondered what change really comes about through the laying on of hands and prayer. I recognise that ordination is about the Church recognising the call of God upon an individual and giving them authority to minister in the name of the Church but what change does it really make? Does God do something in response to the activity of the church and the ordinand? Having not yet experienced ordination I cannot give a personal perspective but I know that for many it is an emotional experience. Although the human experience is not always a sign of God’s activity, I believe that God does responds to the ordination of the ordinand with an anointing for ministry, irrespective of the human emotional experience. The image depicts the anointing of head heart and hands.
