Recently the ARTS OIKOS took to the streets, putting up hand crafted evangelistic posters. The posters went up all along North Granville Street: on poles, buildings slated for demolition, and a construction site that was lit up like a gallery wall. And thinking green, the group used a biodegradable cornstarch glue to put up the posters.
The group had prayed about where to place their “Wanted” poster series. One of the group members had a dream, in which there was a red neon light flashing ‘Tobacco’ with one of the posters behind it. A voice said "put the posters where they will be seen through the neon signs.” The implication was that the posters would shine as lights of hope for people looking for their addiction fix. The group decided that North Granville Street was the place to go.
The Arts OIKOS also connected with a man named Adam, who was selling his art on the street. He was a talented artist who shared his artistic vision with the group. It was neat because the poster they gave him featured Michelangelo's Hand of God and "Adam". Adam continues to be in their prayers.
