Perhaps you’ve seen this graffiti chalked on the footpaths. Perhaps you’ve seen someone wearing the black t-shirt or badge with the logo. Perhaps you’ve seen a Facebook post promoting the phrase or website (jesus-is.org.au).
Whether by graffiti or social media or plain old chatting over a cuppa, Christians in central Wollongong want to hear your thoughts about Jesus.
I’m happy to see others reply with their own graffiti in response!. One person wrote, ‘Jesus is … unemployed’. Another said, ‘Jesus is … E=mc2’. I guess they were suggesting it’s all relative. Or maybe Jesus is responsible for the laws of nature?
On a recent Sunday after church, hundreds of Christians from various denominations – Anglican, Baptist, Presbyterian, Reformed, independent – spelt out the phrase, “JESUS IS _______.” in human letters at Thomas Dalton Park. The event was photographed from the air by an unmanned helicopter drone (repeating an effort at North Beach last year).
A small photo is attached and media outlets can obtain higher-res photos and footage by contacting Sandy Grant via St Michael’s Anglican Cathedral, Wollongong.
The campaign is sponsored by Gospel for the Gong. Gospel for the Gong comprises ministers from Anglican, Baptist, Presbyterian and Reformed Churches around the Wollongong CBD, along with the Evangelical Christian Union, and Fellowship of Overseas Christian University Students, both at UOW.
