Sunday Morning at church

Church was pretty inspirational today. We had a pretty charismatic old vicar in... which was really good.

The morning started badly, but once I got round to focussing on God instead of winding myself up... things were a lot better.

The gospel reading came from John chapter 3 (yup the world famous one). As these words were read out:

"Just as Moses lifted up the snake in the desert, so the Son of Man must be lifted up, that everyone who believes in him may have eternal life." John 3:14,15

I saw a picture of a robed man standing on a mound holding a serpent headed staff above him. He was silhouetted because it was dark and there were stormclouds behind him. But the shadows in the clouds had formed an image of Jesus crucified (visible down to the waist).

I thought that would make an excellent painting. Especially if you added a spot of lightning.

I'm pretty much a visually orientated person.
