#GodInEveryAct Photo Challenge
April 12, 2022
If you captured your faith in a photo, what would it look like?
A new photo challenge in the lead-up to the reconvened 16th Assembly meeting invites you to find out.
From 6-9 May this year, members of the 16th Assembly will regather in person for the reconvened Assembly meeting on Gubbi Gubbi Country on the Sunshine Coast.
Over the weekend they’ll hear stories of how God has been at work in the Uniting Church and in our communities. They’ll listen for how the Spirit is leading us into the future. And they’ll celebrate God’s constant presence with our Church. As always, God will be in these conversations and in this moment of our life. God is in every moment - and in every act.
We invite you to capture a photo that tells a story about how God is present or has been at work in your life. When do you see God in the world? How does the Spirit move in your world?
You might share a photo that represents an answer to prayer for you, God’s love or presence with you or the joy of faith and discipleship. It might be a big moment in your life or something ordinary you see or do every day.
Some examples of what you might snap:
- a place in nature
- your community of faith
- your neighbourhood
- a moment in your daily routine
- something or somewhere connected to your discipleship
- something that gives you peace or joy
- an important moment in your life
- something you’re grateful for
- a sacred space
- Snap any photo that represents your life of faith, a ‘God moment’ or God’s presence with you. You can choose a photo you already have.
- Share by Wednesday 4 May this year. Post on social media using the hashtag #godineveryact and tag us: @unitingchurchau on Facebook, Instagram and Twitter. Note the post will need to be public for us to see it! Let us know in one sentence how God is captured in this moment.
- Be featured at the upcoming reconvened Assembly meeting where we’ll display the photos to inspire members and spark reflection as they do their work.
Note: you cannot take or share photos of strangers or children without consent, so be mindful of who you’re photographing and make sure you have any permissions you need.
If you don’t have social media or prefer not to post publicly, send your photos directly to the Assembly Communications team: firstname.lastname@example.org.
