COSMETIC SURGERY: PERFECT V IMPERFECT

by on Nov.29, 2013, under Personal

Perfectly-Imperfect

Cosmetic surgery has been around for centuries. A medical procedure that mainly dealt with the reconstruction of damaged bones and skin, now has a new purpose. Nowadays, the motivation for this costly exercise has been driven by the pursuit of perfection. No, the pursuit of a ‘perceived’ perfection.

My friend Josh Hawkins just made this video. Here, he shares his thoughts on cosmetic surgery and how we were created, “fearfully and wonderfully made” (Psalm 139:14).

“We judge on face value, but He loves on faith value”. Love it!

Beautifully shot by Anthony Harrison, ‘Imperfect’ offers a powerfully positive message to those wrestling with one of today’s biggest personal stigmas… body image.

Well done, chaps!

A huge thank you to Anthony Harrison for his amazing artistic skills and to all who contributed to this wonderful video.

Following the message, John Gray (Senior Minister) invited everyone to place their Vision Forms in the boxes. It was very moving to see hundreds of people stream forward indicating their commitment of time, talent and treasures for the work of the gospel in 2014.

After the service, it was also moving to see hundreds of people (including kids) write on the massive blackboard in the Foyer, to say “I’M IN!”

After 6 years at St Paul’s, I’m honoured to say that I love my job and I love this church.

I’M IN for 2014! Are you?
