Cushions on Sunday

One of the chapters in the Peach and the Coconut is about Artists and how each of us, created in the image of God, has a creative element. This needs to find expression if we are to be all God created us to be. Different people will express their creativity differently, it might be singing, writing, painting, fixing cars, baking cakes or starting companies. As a church we want to give full expression to different peoples creativity.

To that end Catherine Barrett and Rodney Dee came to me a while ago with an idea to express their creativity in some pieces of art around the Kerith Centre. As a start from this Sunday you may notice some random cushions around on the seats. Don’t worry, as these are part of the art project that Rodney and Catherine are doing. They are looking to gather information from people who attend Kerith, which will later be used for future art interventions within the church. All information gathered will be anonymous, so I would just like to encourage you to look out for the cushions on Sunday and add your comments. There will be the opportunity to respond to different questions on cushions over the coming weeks, so look out for them around the auditorium. This is a great way for you to voice your thoughts.

If you have any further questions or would like to know more about this project please speak to Rodney or Catherine at the end of the meeting, or you can also find out more about the project from the link to their blog.

Simon.
