Holy Week, 2007

Today our pastor suggested we might want to put out some reminders of Holy Week in our homes. Among the items suggested were stone, bread, perfume bottle, wooden cross, nails, thorns, vinegar, pieces of silver. There were others, too. I thought this to be an excellent idea, and the shelf below my seasons of the liturgy wall hanging space seemed to be just the right place. Joe thought so, too, and he helped to gather and arrange the things we wanted to put out. This hanging-and-shelf area is right in our front foyer, so we will are reminded as we come into the house and go out.

Visual reminders of the solemn journey we all embark upon with Jesus this week. The nails, for me, are the hardest things to think about.

Well, I'll have to think about what things I could put up. I'm not real big on Easter bunnies at this time of year though I like bunnies. Thanks for the nudge.

Your wallhanging and display are very evocative; the cross and thorns against the purple are so moving, the suffering and the regality. Thank you for your symbolism and thought.
