For we are God’s masterpiece. He created us anew in Christ Jesus, so we can do the good things He planned for us long ago.” Ephesians 2:10
More than a decade ago, when the 43-year-old mother of two Jamie Lee Curtis insisted on posing for a More magazine’s cover in her “natural form,” it shocked the world. The fact that it was such a shocking news story at the time to see the heart-throb, “sex symbol” of big screen cinema as she naturally appears in her mirror at home — before a dozen makeup and hair artists get their hands on her — is sort of appalling, a sign that perhaps society has been led astray.
“I need to be the person I look at every morning when I wake up and stand in the mirror, you know, kind of as God intended me to look,” Curtis explained to the San Francisco Chronicle in 2002. “What I’m scared of is that that’s what women have become accustomed to needing to feel good about themselves, and show business and media and magazines don’t help by promoting these images of women that are completely airbrushed, that are completely altered, to then give you, the unsuspecting buyer, this fake sense of that that’s what people are supposed to look like.”
To combat that trend, Cathy Mullen and her team from Point of Grace Church, formed “Image.”
“Why not find out what our Creator has to say about us and the way we are created?” Mullen says. “God says He created us on purpose and for a purpose. He says we are a masterpiece; accepted and loved.”So the POG Women’s Ministry will host another gathering of “Image,” an event for women of all ages, to join in celebration of the way they are created in God’s image. The event promises not only food, fun, music and games but also “an inspirational message that will be sure to send you out encouraged and inspired,” Mullen says.
The Friday night event will be held at 7 p.m. on Oct. 4 in the Point of Grace Church auditorium. Tickets are $10 per person, and all women of all ages, all sizes and all kinds, are welcome. For more information, email Cathy at email@example.com.
