Jesus falls for the second timeGravity pulls at your head.
whether this cup can be taken from you. Not your will, God’s will. Gravity pulls at your shoulders. Red raw,
splintering in lacerations. Weight of wood pressing down. Gravity pulls at your legs
the length and breath of the country, having knelt
in prayer in Gethsemene,
while beaten and whipped.
Gravity pulls you down.
Above is one painting from Mark of the Cross created by Henry Shelton, followed by words written by Jonathan Evens. They form part of 20 meditations to ponder on the magnitude of the cross and resurrection. You can view more of the series or purchase the pdf and powerpoint at Twelvebaskets. I will be using the pack at our next Cafe Church Kingsley this week. Stunning artwork and thought provoking words will open up the events around Easter in a new and imaginative way. Jonathan Evens is also involved in commission4mission an organisation that encourages churches to be involved in public art projects. You can visit his blog by clicking the link.
