After the introductory talk, In Christ is the first of six talks on Identity.
As before, I answered some of the questions in my notebook.
In my art journal I wanted to do something about being wrapped in a cloak as though wrapped around by Christ. But I couldn't think how to do that and I don't draw people in my art journals!
It came to me that I could use the same sack images from the Crisis page but have them black - filled with the rubbish from my old life and put them at the foot of the cross. I drew this out in pencil on the next page in the journal.
I coloured in with water soluble coloured pencils and went over the colouring with a water brush. I used a silver pen to write the words on the sacks. I wrote the word forgiven with a black pen and drew round the letters with the silver pen. As I was using the silver pen I realised I was wrapping the word. So without thinking about it I had managed to wrap Jesus round my life after all.
I drew the dashed line in turquoise aound the page. Here are the two pages togther.
Thanks for stopping by.
