The anchor outside St Clement’s has been wrapped in the prayers of our youth.
The youth used different fabrics, yarn, and even ratchet straps to symbolize the prayers which strengthen us and bring us close to God. Whether it's something we're passionate about or something that makes us sad, part of being a Christian means talking to God about what's on our mind and what's on our hearts.
The different colours used symbolize prayers for the land, water, and creatures that fill the earth (can you spot the yellow duck?). Blue and green also represent our St Clement’s colours and if you look closely, you'll see that all of the colours we see throughout the church year have been wrapped around the anchor:
Red - for Holy Week and Pentecost
White- for Easter, Christmas, and Feast Days
Green - for Ordinary "harvest" time
Blue - for Advent
Purple - for Lent
The final product of our anchor art project was more abstract than we had anticipated. :) But, as one of the youth reminded us: we don't always have to know the purpose of everything!
