Lenten Journey moves into Holy Week

These are the symbols we collected as we reflected on the Lectionary gospel readings during Lent.

  • Sand, from the desert, where Jesus sojourned for 40 days
  • The serpent - lifted up in the wilderness
  • A bucket - the Samaritan woman at the well told Jesus: "You have no bucket"
  • Eye glasses - the blind man was helped to see better physically and spiritually
  • A piece of cloth - the grave clothes that bound Lazarus
  • A worry doll (from Mexico!) reminding us that we are as fickle as the crowd who cried Hosanna AND Crucify him.
As we've journeyed through Holy Week, we've gone back to examine how people were changed by encountering Jesus - the Samaritan woman, the blind man and Lazarus.
And so we journey on, to betrayal and to Calvary.
