A Wake for Jesus

A couple more Holy Week images

Here’s a couple more images from Miranda. The one on the left goes fairly obviously with the Liturgy of the Palms. The one to the right was designed for a particular Good Friday service at a church she works with. The combination of bread, wine, and a crown of thorns makes it a little unusual, [...]
