Media @ New Hope CalgaryIn this message we’re going to talk about icons; those God created things that act as windows or doors into the presence of the Divine heart.

“Who fathers the drops of dew?”
God to Job in 38:28

“A true icon is not a reflection; it is a metaphor, a different unlike look at something, and carries within it something of that at which it looks.”
Madeleine L’Engle

“May God give you of heaven's dew and of earth's richness- an abundance of grain and new wine.”
A blessing from Genesis 27:28

“Listen, O heavens, and I will speak; hear, O earth, the words of my mouth. Let my teaching fall like rain and my words descend like dew, like showers on new grass, like abundant rain on tender plants. I will proclaim the name of the LORD. Oh, praise the greatness of our God!”
The prophet Moses in Deuteronomy. 32:1-3

I hear this most gentle whisper from One,
I never guessed would speak to me.”
Psalm 81:5

“What do people really get for all their hard work? I have seen the burden God has placed on us all. Yet God has made everything beautiful for its own time. He has planted eternity in the human heart, but even so, people cannot see the whole scope of God’s work from beginning to end.”
The wisdom of Ecclesiastes 3
