Our Mission Centre is looking for artists and for those who are proficient in computer drawings or renderings. Would you be able to start with a raw image of an empty building space and transform it into sacred space? With your knowledge of Community of Christ symbols, mission and sense of community, you would be designing sacred space with meaning.
This is an important skill set for the church to begin envisioning our transition from traditional church buildings to new spaces in a variety of settings. Our tendency is to resist change so we need to be able to visualize the outcome of what creating new spiritual homes might look like, otherwise, we feel lost that nothing can replace the existing structure even though it has had its day and time and is beyond our affordability.
The new will likely be less square foot in size, not have a spire on the roof or be located on a large piece of property. But, the interior look and feel will inspire, have flexible design elements for multiple uses, have technology that extends our reach and enhances our experience and connections. For most of us, this stuff of dreams is too random and illusive that we clutch onto what we have. Creative artistry can grant us new vision so we can picture, experience within and anticipate a special place that meets our highest expectations and is invitational to our local community and our younger generations.
If you are artistic and have vision and hope for the church of our future today, please email me to talk about the possibilities.
