Commemorative Stamp reflecting the work of Chantal Bethel
and two other artists
Launched by the Bahamas Post Office
As the Bahamas was chosen to be the host for International Wold day of Prayer 2015, three artists were asked to submit works to be used during the Conference of international World Day Of Prayer.
From the three proposals, they chose “Blessed” by Chantal Bethel to be the WDP art theme.
“Blessed” celebrates the Bahamas through our National Bird, the Flamingo. It also celebrates our blessings as we share with the world across the ocean.
The flamingos bow at the feet of Christ for there is
Forgiveness, Peace and Love
in this act of Submission.
Chantal E.Y. Bethel
The Committee also proudly announces that the Bahamas Postal Service is launching three commemorative stamps honoring the World Day of Prayer. The three stamps reflect the work of 3 local artists in creating an artwork to carry on the message of the 2015 theme. The three commemorative stamps will share this year’s message for generations to come. Stamps: 15c “Never Forget How to Serve” by Jessica Colebrooke; 50c “Blessed” by Chantal Bethel; 65c “The Master Key” by Tyrone Ferguson. The stamps will be released on March 6.
"World Day of Prayer is a global, ecumenical movement of Christian women joined together to observe a common day of prayer each year on the first Friday of March. Our motto of " Informed Prayer & Prayerful Action " signifies that prayer and action are inseparable." The 2014 gathering was held in Egypt in March. The Bahamas was chosen as the Host for 2015.
