Lent 42: sheer silliness

28 03 2013

“The Message that points to Christ on the cross seems like sheer silliness to those hellbent on destruction, but for those on the way of salvation it makes perfect sense. This is the way God works, and most powerfully as it turns out…”  

(1 Corinthians 1:18. Eugene Peterson’s paraphrase in The Message. The link should take you to both the NIV and The Message.)

I made this cross mosaic a year ago or so. Lent 42: sheer sillinessMaybe two now– I can’t remember. It likely looks like “sheer silliness” to many.. but to me, it makes perfect sense. I carefully chose all the pieces of this mosaic to represent something particular. And now, every time I see it, I remember, and give thanks to God for bringing me through the season that prompted mosaic-making.
