Minister’s Blog

3 May 2019

He wanted to be a minister – but he wasn’t accepted by the church. He turned to art – but he wasn’t successful. He painted 869 pictures – but he only sold one!

His paintings weren’t valuable then – but they are now! Last year, one was sold for over fifty million pounds – but he died in poverty, by his own hand, rejected by everyone except his brother!

What beauty he has given to the world – but it has only been appreciated in death. Don’t let the day pass without appreciating your brother or your sister, your neighbour or friend. Who knows? Vincent van Gogh may be living next door!
