I took some work colleagues to visit the Sistine Chapel Exhibition on the weekend. I didn’t realise that Michelangelo’s paintings were based off of biblical stories and events, I just thought they were paintings on a roof. Well long story short, once I realised that they were depictions of these stories I was able to give more context and share the Bible story behind the painting when asked by my colleagues. Like David and Goliath, Jonah, the bronze snake in the wilderness, Noah’s ark etc. and then be able to talk about Jesus with them as well. It was interesting because other people were gathering around while I was sharing the story of the paintings and I was amazed at how weird and crazy the stories of the Bible are but because of this, how intriguing they are to people who haven’t heard them before. Because of this, the colleagues that I took have been asking me questions about my faith and why I believe what I believe. Excited to see how this continues to play out because of simply and inviting people to things.
