the art of being ekkleisia - reflections from melissa

One of the things I loved most about this series was the imagery. I'll be honest - I am an image conscious person. Not in an entirely shallow way, though I'm certainly capable of being so! I tend to think in images, when I try to understand something, I usually create pictures in my mind to get my head around the idea. So trying to understand the kinds of images which are used in the New Testament to describe the church was something I found easy to connect with - though the thoughts generated were certainly not without challenge for me.

One of the ways that I got to expore the images was by putting together 3 out of four of the images we used with the scripture readings. For me, putting these together was an exercise in both exegesis and meditation. Here are the images again:

body art (the body of Christ)

what not to wear (the bride of Christ)

blogos (letters written on human flesh)
