Moses at the Salmon

To the Salmon Youth Centre yesterday evening for the opening of 'Prodigy' - the first solo art exhibition by one of their young people, our very own Moses.

The canvasses displayed in the exhibition represent two to three years work by Moses in the evening groups at Salmon, but they also represent something else: his own developing knowledge of God and his ways - and that's what came over loud and clear last night when we had the opportunity not just to see the artwork but to hear the artist explaining the thinking behind his work.

Here is Moses pictured alongside what was my favourite piece from the exhibition: rebirth. The painting reflects his experience and it takes us right back to the change that Christ brings in any life: 'when anyone is in Christ, he is new creation, the old has gone, the new has come.'
