14/8/2011 Evening service at Brayton Methodist Church
Preacher: Sally Coleman
I’m not sure the image fully connects with the sermon, the worship or prayers but it is certainly the image that came to my mind, although the sermon was most certainly a critique of Church and what we are here for. I think the Holy Spirit was trying to tell me something, not unrelated to the sermon, about the recent riots and the relationship of the Church in the UK to wider society. I’m still processing it. What do you see?
Whose hands are truly clean? Guilt free? The ‘Christ’ in the image shows us scarred hands – the righteous hands scarred by the sins of the world.
