Forest Church Thought of the Day

Iron Galls

Ink is kinda magical. “It’s a bridge between the world of flesh and blood and the world of thoughts and dreams”.

Can you imagine how the first people to see books and realise how they work felt?

Have you ever wondered about the social and spiritual effects of introducing the technology of the printing press?

We found some oak galls at Februaries Forest Church. They will be made into ink soon, here is a short video made by someone exploring the process. Perhaps it will inspire your curiosity.
