Lenten and Easter Photography Exhibit
“From dust you came and to dust you will return” Ecclesiates 3:20 . These words begin the Lenten season, a time of reflection and preparation during the forty days leading up to Easter. Traditionally, lent has been a second Advent, a time of contemplating Christ—his temptation in the wilderness, his ministry, his death, and his triumphal resurrection. This season of reflection can pull us out of the clamor of everyday life and put us in touch with our longing for Christ. For only in him can we find true joy and life!
In this exhibit, we invite you to reflect on the seven last sayings of Christ, taken from the four Gospel accounts of his death, as well as a collection of songs, hymns, and psalms that will be included in the Good Friday service.
