The Art of Christmas

20th December 2017

This week I have been getting ready for Christmas! I love how the Christmas story has been an inspiration for creativity across the arts for hundreds of years. Paintings, sculptures, poems, songs, jewellery, decorations, cards, plays, stained glass, murals, books, movies, television and even clothes! The wonderful Biblical ‘Nativity’ story remains one of the most told stories in such incredible ways! Those at the very Christmas were impacted both sight and sound...

Then the shepherds went back to their sheep, praising God and thanking him for everything they had seen and heard. It had been just as the angel had told them.
Luke 2:20 The NCV Bible

And what a story it is! The creator of the universe became created, God became a human in an incredible act of love, mercy and grace to rescue all people back to Himself! Let’s never forget THIS story. Long may it continue to inspire artists as well as change lives, as it did at the very first Christmas. Jesus was and is God with us! Merry Christmas!
