24/11/2011 Wesley Study Centre Preaching Service
Worship Leader: Tim Frances
Preacher: Anne Coates
Scripture: Isaiah 64:1-11
The opening prayers began with the wonders of creation and the creator God – the depths of the ocean, the stars in space and even the sand on a beach. The scripture and the sermon spoke of the hope of a God who would ‘rend the heavens’.
The image began to form with the cloudy skies parting to reveal a light from heaven, a star of promise, the foretell of the coming King. The beacon off the shore forms the shape of the cross, speaking of the Saviour’s cross.
The coast is a place I love to go, its one of those thin places where it seems the veil between Heaven and Earth can be as transparent as glass, a place where prayer and being still before God come more naturally to me and so all of these ideas collide and out of that collision the image came.
