Everyone bears the image of God in a uniquely beautiful way that showcases God’s infinite creative talent while maintaining the unity that we all have in reflecting him. To help us ponder what it means to be a living picture of the God of the universe, West End commissioned designer Matt Logan to present images of individuals, some faces known and loved in our church family and others part of the larger community, made up of unique layers, patterns, and textures.
From poetry to live music, art has the power to help us see the world in new ways, to think about topics and issues with more depth, and to break down emotional and intellectual barriers to our encounters with God and the community of believers around us.
The “In His Image,” art exhibition is now on display in the long hallway area of our Discipleship Center. Our desire is that this exhibition will help open our hearts and minds to the presence of God in our time together.
Genesis 1:27 tells us, “So God created man in his own image, in the image of God he created him; male and female he created them.“ Our good Father gave this concept of being made “in his image” as the first defining characteristic of what it means to be human and the basis for how we are to relate to one another.
We hope you will take time to pause and reflect on the beautiful message “In His Image” communicates as you enter to worship on Sunday, as well as appreciate the uplifting aesthetic it brings to our church. We pray it paints a beautiful story for everyone that enters the space, from longtime members to new visitors.
