John of Damascus

Today as we commemorate John of Damascus,

here is some information on who he was, and a glimpse  into Icon’s.

If anyone would like to know more about Icon’s, it is an area that Rev Peta has studied and she would gladly share with you her insight. 

“I do not worship matter, I worship the God of matter, who became matter for my sake and deigned to inhabit matter, who worked out my salvation through matter. I will not cease from honoring that matter which works for my salvation. I venerate it, though not as God.”

– John of Damascus
