ART POSTER: Commentary on Art Piece

2012 Week of Prayer for Christian Unity

The creation of the selected piece, entitled 'Colossians III 1," was inspired by a sermon delivered by Matt Carter of the Austin Stone Community Church. This sermon focused on Paul's charge to the church in Colossae, wherein he challenges all who have been raised to new life with Christ to seek the things of heaven. The heart of this image centers upon the angelic figure bursting forth in an exultant explosion of joy and vitality, evoking a sense of celebration, which is the only suitable response to the new life we have in Jesus Christ.

JustinUlmer, of Sevenapples Christian Art, donated the image chosen to represent this year's theme for the Week of Prayer. Sevenapples is a ministry in pictures devoted to demonstrating the love of Jesus to theworld. Justin Ulmer lives in The Woodlands, Texas with his wife and two children where he serves as the Communications Director of WoodsEdge Community Church. You can find more of his art at www.sevenapples.net, or by downloading the Sevenapples App from iTunes.
