Our friend Hana, Ordinand at St Mark's Church, Saltney has created wonderful pieces of art to share with you each day as we journey through Holy Week together.
Speaking of why she chose to use her hands within the images, Hana said
"I decided to use my hands to symbolise the journey of Holy Week because these stories in scripture have become mine and the story of many others. We spend this week remembering a time in history that is pivotal to the Christian faith and how we live out our lives today.".
Wednesday in Holy Week
Luke 22:1-6 New Revised Standard Version (NRSV)
The Plot to Kill Jesus
22 Now the festival of Unleavened Bread, which is called the Passover, was near. 2 The chief priests and the scribes were looking for a way to put Jesus[a] to death, for they were afraid of the people.
3 Then Satan entered into Judas called Iscariot, who was one of the twelve; 4 he went away and conferred with the chief priests and officers of the temple police about how he might betray him to them. 5 They were greatly pleased and agreed to give him money. 6 So he consented and began to look for an opportunity to betray him to them when no crowd was present.
God as we walk through
Holy Week toward the cross,
May we remember the wonder of you you are.
Your love is inexhaustible,
Your forgiveness is incomprehensible.
Your grace is poured out eternally,
Your life is unimaginable.
Beyond human understanding,
Your ways are always higher than ours.
