Waymaker is an artwork that has developed over the last Month or so inbetween other works that have developed in the studio. As the church announced their next series on prayer, I realised why this image has taken some time to work on. It’s larger scale having something to do with it, but also more […]

As the series “get us out of here” comes to an end in iso church, I am reminded of how the narrative of the Israelites leaving Egypt talked about over the last few months, has given me fresh insights into “known” scripture. This artwork has developed over the last couple of weeks. Today I’ve been […]

In iso church studio time today. Lots of meaty stuff in the menu. This one thing stuck. “God isn’t rescuing the Israelites for them.God rescued the Israelites for him.” He’s doing the same in all our situations.

This artwork draft comes to life as a response to not just iso church today and the series talking about Moses and the Israelites travel plans.

“What’s in your hand” are the words God asked Moses when Moses tried to convince God he wasn’t the man for the job. He was much older and no longer the man of his youth willing to embrace the vigor of justice by any means. Maybe now he stands before God questioning his life purpose. […]

In iso church studio time today this image came to life. As we start to look at the book of Exodus and how God took something like 70 people and grew them into the nation of Israel during persecution, during their lockdown in Egypt, I am reminded to look at the positives and for the […]

What has shaped you? Which piece of the puzzle is God developing in you through this season? In this season have you stopped to reflect on what you have learned about your shape and how you are being wired? The experiences that we choose for us and those that we could never imagine or ever […]

In the time I have worked in secondary education I have moved away from asking my students what do they want to do when they grow up or when they leave school. Instead the questions are centred around this one question. “What do you see in the world that hits your heart so intensely that […]

Today in iso Church this image, one of three, came to life. We are all people that God calls to do ministry. Not types of ministry based on gender, age, or cultural background, but ministry based on God’s call on our life. To suppress a person’s gift is to surpress the person. How are you […]
