Paul tells us that in Christ we are a new creation. St. James has
provided parishioners and visitors alike with an inspiring mural on the
theme of creation. The mural provides an opportunity for prayerful
contemplation on the nature of creation from perspectives that are
biblical, Christian and contemporary.
east windows depict the story of creation, holding in creative balance the
biblical creation story and a modern understanding of the created order.
west windows depict the ongoing work of creation. This includes the
work of humankind as partners in creation after "the fall", and
the work of Christ in whom there is new creation. Creation is a very
significant subject in contemporary spirituality.
Christian mural is an artistic appreciation of the created order, and its
relationship to our faith.
