Tom Hocking, pastor of the Bellflower (Calif.) Brethren Church and current moderator of the Fellowship of Grace Brethren Churches, invites prayer and participation in a unique public opportunity. Here is a portion of Tom’s invitation:
“I would appreciate your prayers for (and invite your participation in) a significant event in the life of my city. The official Unveiling of the mammoth Decalogue sculpture will occur at 4 PM this Saturday at 16400 Bellflower Blvd. The Decalogue was created by internationally renowned sculptor, Liviu Mocan, commissioned by the city of Geneva to commemorate the 500th anniversary of John Calvin’s birth. After being at three different sites in Geneva last year it will be on display in Bellflower for the months of July and August-presenting a unique opportunity for gospel dialogue.
“I spent several hours today with Liviu as a group of volunteers from a variety of churches in Bellflower began the installation of the sculpture. He is an amazing artist with the heart of a pastor. You may not have many reasons to visit Bellflower, but if you appreciate art–or have friends who do–and are intrigued by the secular hearing which this Christian artist has earned, I invite you to come by this Saturday afternoon to meet him!”
