Tryptich in the Chruch of the Resurrection
These are some photographs of the tryptich that hangs in the worship space of the Church of the Resurrection where I serve. It is a graphic portrayal of some of the attrocities of the 20th century: mustartd gass in WWI, lynchings, american sweat shops. Over these images hangs Jesus on the cross. This artwork keeps me mindful of two things: 1) Jesus, that is to say God incarnate is present in our suffering, 2) We are to stand with Jesus to change the world to prevent these atrocities.
