This is Easter Week and I received a message from our “Friday Project” leader that our church Trinity Presbyterian in Prescott, AZ was having a very unique church service Friday evening, in remembrance of Good Friday.
No pressure here… “Do you happen to have a couple of paintings that would work well with our Good Friday Service? We are leading the congregation from the creation story through the fall/brokenness then through the incarnation to the cross and hopefully to the joy of resurrection.”
If you know my art most of it is brightly colored with lot’s of movement and positive-energy. So I looked through my inventory.
Yes, I did find two awesome paintings that will work well for their intended mission. These two paintings above are perfect in their story of hope. The story of Christ is about finding love and being born again in hope and mercy.
“Deep Under” can be expressed as this… “The murkiness of life can sometimes feel as if we are drowning. What if we dove deep to find our inner peace? Instead of drowning we would be floating in love.”
“Finding the Path” can be expressed as this… “After a bout with cancer I attended a life changing retreat to transition to a new life path. I traveled from darkness to light, as I opened my eyes to God’s marvelous creation of me.”
So even the darkest of paintings can shine with the light of resurrection. I am looking forward to Friday night, and the Friday Project. 6:00pm at Trinity.
