Robert Brittain’s “24 Images of John’s Apocalypse” was commissioned and blessed at a special worship service at the Wembley Downs Church of Christ this morning. Emeritus Professor Reverend William Loader was present to address the gathering on the background and relevance of the book as a “text of hope.”
Rosemary Hunter, lecturer in art history, spoke of the critical elements of imagination, emotion and order that were consistently portrayed through Mr Brittain’s work, emphasising a positive message of ultimate reconciliation.
It only took 20 minutes to lay out just now. All that was needed was a paved area and 2 x 50m rolls of masking tape. World Labyrinth day is all day tomorrow and a number of more permanent labyrinths around Perth will be open. This one, weather permitting, should last about 5 or 6 weeks.
