The famous word “Eternity” was once again written in the sky above the Sydney Harbour Bridge last week.
The cursive script used by Arthur Stace, who wrote ‘eternity’ in chalk on pavements as a one-word sermon half a million times, was once again seen by thousands on Friday 5 June.
Eternity News reports that the sky writing, to promote a movie about Arthur Stace, was visible for about 20 minutes.

Arthur Stace began his mission, scrawling the word “Eternity” on the streets of Sydney in the 1930s, after being inspired by the words of evangelist John Ridley.
The evangelist was purported to have spoken the words “Eternity, Eternity, I wish that I could sound or shout that word to everyone in the streets of Sydney. You’ve got to meet it, where will you spend Eternity?”
‘Eternity’ famously appeared on the bridge during the fireworks display for New Year’s Eve 2000.
The film will draw on the book “Mr Eternity: The Story of Arthur Stace by Roy Williams with Elizabeth Meyers.
