the hospitality of Abraham and Sarah

This is just one of the many wonderful icons currently on display in the exhibition in the Ecumenical Centre Chapel this week and next. This is an interpretation of the famous Roublev icon and is painted by Didi Marmoud who gave a very inspiring testimony at the opening this afternoon about how painting icons had brought her back on to the path of faith and finally also back to church.
What is fascinating about this interpretation is that it includes not only the three persons of the Godhead and Abraham but also Sarah who is bringing the bread. i don't think I've seen an interpretation like this before but I really like it - as did the members of the feminist theology group who turned up for the "vernissage" today.
