Peace, Be Still. He Qi. 1998
He Qi is one of the most admired and respected Christian artists of our time. He was raised in the wake of the Cultural Revolution in China, and his first major work as an artist was of Chairman Mao. Over time he dedicated and developed his artistic skill to communicate the Christian gospel for the Chinese context, blending Chinese folk customs and traditional Chinese painting with European art forms past and present. This canvas communicates the scene found in Luke 8:22-25, and illustrates the sermon themes of ‘The Storm of Life’ and Jesus as the Lord of all life, even the storms!
This morning we will be welcoming to the pulpit Wilson Eyong, a student at Presbyterian College Montréal. Wilson is originally from the Cameroon West Africa and fled the country in 2000 due to political instability. After years in Ireland, he and his family are now in Canada, and we thank him for making the long journey to be with us this morning to share something of his life and faith with us.
We invite you to join us in Christian worship either in the sanctuary (following COVID protocols of safe distancing, mask wearing and refraining from singing) or by live-stream at https://youtu.be/_VZKAcVFGDk Sunday morning. Organ preludes will begin around 10:25 a.m. and the service will commence at 10:30 a.m. Previous services can be found on the St. Andrew’s Youtube channel at https://www.youtube.com/c/StAndrewsPresbyterianChurchKingston
