St John the Baptist Church in Great Gaddesden, Hertfordshire, seen from the East. In the foreground you see the local war memorial commemorating the fallen in the two world wars. The church building dates back to the twelfth century, whilst the tower was erected in the 15th. The transformation of the cross of the war memorial into a sword is, of course, what visually dominates this image. It is an expression of what used to be "militant" Christianity. Today, little of this militancy is left. The local vicar has to serve two more congregations, and it is difficult to fill the church. The crowds, if there are any crowds in the hamlet of Great Gaddesden, go somewhere else: they go for meditation practice in St Margaret, a Theravada Buddhist monastery - just a stone throw away from the church.

I chose my hero, Jesus. I made a mess of my life many years ago. I hit bottom and finally surrendered my life to Christ to take the mess that I was and create a new person. I now have new hope every day and I know where I'm spending my eternity. It's what I wish for every person in this world. It was the best decision I have ever made. He chose the nails for me and you.

You are the devil’s gateway; you are the unsealer of that forbidden tree; you are the first deserter of Divine law. You are she who persuaded him whom the devil was not valiant enough to attack. You destroyed so easily God’s image, man.

Apocalypse 3:20

My one attempt at painting that actually looked kind of how I hoped it would. As Christians, we are called to take up our cross and follow Him daily. Fortunately, we don't to it in our own strength.
