Amazing first birthday at Kingdom Arts
The morning began with praise and prayer and recognition of our wonderful first year exploring creativity through faith. (And the promise of cake!)
The theme for the session was based on Psalm 1 and the book of Revelation 22. “Like trees planted by streams of water which yield their fruit in its season”
We began work on an innovative quilt showing the tree of life, with streams of water and opportunities for everyone’s involvement. Glorious fabrics, bright paper, threads, sequins and joy abounded. Birds, leaves and a flowing river were created around the tree.
Flowers created by “the Lads” with fabric pleated and tied with a central button were in evidence; previous examples can be seen in our 2017 calendar.
Some thoughtful words were written on paper leaves to accompany it.
Finally always an uplifting time, the gathering together to show and explain our work and give thanks for God’s inspiration. His spirit is working among us.
Then there was lunch and the magnificent celebration first birthday cake!
