Interview: Alexander McKenzie

Have you ever wanted to be an artist? Many of us dabble in art and craft as a hobby, but very few become professionals. But this week Rev Keith Garner interviews Alexander McKenzie, an Australian who has made art his career.

“I was the little kid who drew and painted at school. I was the kid that used to draw caricatures of the teachers and my school friends,” Alexander shares.

As Rev Keith Garner interviews Alexander, you’ll learn more about how his artistic career began, his multiple awards, and why he is passionate about making art that intrigues and engages.

Plus, Alexander explains the meaning of some of his beautiful paintings. It’s an interview that’s not to be missed!

Keith's message: A great cloud of witnesses

Rev Keith Garner opens God’s Word to Hebrews 12 to explore the idea of us being ‘surrounded by such a great cloud of witnesses.’ Rev Garner explains that when we are surrounded by others who also follow Jesus – both those who are here and now, and those who have gone before, we can persevere in following Jesus.

This inspiring message will give you a new appreciation of the Christian community that God has placed around you, in your family, your church or your workplace.
