Redemption

Watching WindCity folks take this old cedar from a discard pile at The Link: 

Take out nails, cut off the unusable parts at a few folks houses:

Power-wash, sand, cut and stack the wood in preparation for treatment:

Then finally, after the process of transformation is full and the old is almost unrecognizable, it has become the backdrop for our area of worship at the new WindCity Location - The Church in the Mall.  

All that to say, this old cedar is a great reminder of what God is doing in so many of us and can do in anyone who surrenders to Him. 

A great promise for you to find your real life in Christ! Just like Clarity who got saved and is pictured with that beautiful wood.

Your old life is dead. Your new life, which is your real life - even though invisible to spectators - is with Christ in God. He is your life. When Christ (your real life, remember) shows up again on this earth, you'll show up, too - the real you, the glorious you. Colossians 3:3-4 (Message Paraphrase)
