_Message :: The Body of Christ
This artwork is a depiction of the body of Christ in good working order.
Eleven kids from the ministry stand side-by-side and form the focal point of the artwork as they hold up large metal letters that spell “Freedom Fire.”
Each child in this artwork has a specific role to play in the overall message. If
one child was missing, the message would be incomplete. If one child was out
of order, the message would be unclear. The message of the Gospel will be unmistakable when all parts of the body are present and doing what God has called them to do.
Contributing Artists :: Freedom Fire + Community
Prior to creating this artwork, the blank canvas was left at Freedom Fire for ministry staff and board members to form a foundation of written scripture and prayer for the artists to build upon.
When the artwork was shown and sold at The Art Event, attendees were invited to help complete the piece by signing their name on the "wall" of the finished piece. Their signature indicates their belief in the vision and ministry of Freedom Fire.
