No-one has ever seen God and yet we are surrounded by clues. Art fuels our imagination. Through the camera lens we are helped to see different dimensions of reality. Aston & Erdington Photographic Society and Chester Road Baptist Church invite entries for a photography competition that challenges entrants to interpret and capture the Image of the Invisible God.
Aston & Erdington Photographic Society meets every Monday evening during term-time, 8-10 pm, at Chester Road Baptist Church, Chester Road, Sutton Coldfield B73 5HU. It is affiliated to the Photographic Alliance of Great Britain through the Midland Counties Photographic Federation. They are always keen to welcome new members.
Entries should be for one of five photography genres/ categories:
"Jesus is the image of the invisible God, the firstborn over all creation. For in him all things were created: things in heaven and on earth, visible and invisible.” Colossians 1:15-16
“For since the creation of the world God’s invisible qualities - his eternal power and divine nature - have been clearly seen, being understood from what has been made, so that people are without excuse.” Romans 1:20
Lord, when did we see you? I was hungry and you gave me something to eat, I was thirsty and you gave me something to drink, I was a stranger and you invited me in.” Matthew 25:35
“Surely God was in this place and I was not aware of it.” Genesis 28:16
“God is light; in him there is no darkness at all.” 1 John 1:5
