St John’s Cup / Artist: Ninian Comper / Location: Downside Abbey / "James and John, the sons of Zebedee, came forward to him and said to him, ‘Teacher, we want you to do for us whatever we ask of you.’ And he said to them, ‘What is it you want me to do for you?’ And they said to him, ‘Grant us to sit, one at your right hand and one at your left, in your glory.’ But Jesus said to them, ‘You do not know what you are asking. Are you able to drink the cup that I drink, or be baptized with the baptism that I am baptized with?’ They replied, ‘We are able.’ Then Jesus said to them, ‘The cup that I drink you will drink; and with the baptism with which I am baptized, you will be baptized; but to sit at my right hand or at my left is not mine to grant, but it is for those for whom it has been prepared.’” (Mark 10:35-40)

These illustrations were for a sermon series on music & faith I created for @creekwoodchristianchurch recently. They covered R & B, Singer/Songwriter, Rap, & Dad Rock. Loved their concept & creating the art for it. #artrocks
If I could speak all the languages of earth and of angels, but didn’t love others, I would only be a noisy gong or a clanging cymbal. If I had the gift of prophecy, and if I understood all of God’s secret plans and possessed all knowledge, and if I had such faith that I could move mountains, but didn’t love others, I would be nothing. If I gave everything I have to the poor and even sacrificed my body, I could boast about it; but if I didn’t love others, I would have gained nothing. - 1 Corinthians 13:1-3 NLT #washedart
The Coronation of the Virgin / Artist: Ninian Comper / Location: Downside Abbey / "The saying is sure: If we have died with him, we will also live with him; if we endure, we will also reign with him” (2 Timothy 2:11-12)
There was nowhere to park the #f650gs in Kirby Grindalythe for what has become my traditional shot in front of a Yorkshire village church so, next to the nearby Gipsy Race had to suffice. Just along a path was the C12th. church dedicated to St. Andrew. The mosaic on the west wall is breathtaking and such a surprise to find it here. #churcharchitecture#churchart#kirbygrindalythe
