Introduction

St. 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.

 

The east windows depict the story of creation, holding in creative balance the biblical creation story and a modern understanding of the created order.

 

The 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.

 

The Christian mural is an artistic appreciation of the created order, and its relationship to our faith.
