Images of Church...
I seem fast becoming a Prodigal Kiwi(s) groupie!
Alan Jamieson uses two pictures to illustrate what church should and shouldn't be (here). His insights are well worth a read.
"The Church at Auver" painted by Van Gogh and the classic "Blitzed St Paul's" convey distinct and contrasting images of church. Alan Jamieson has them on his wall - I want them on mine now too as a reminder of what church should and shouldn't be. One standing for hope amoungst fragmentation and destruction - the other standing as an irrelevant out of shape obstacle to be walked around.
