Worship Image by Roger Gibson: “The Wilderness that Invites the Journey”

The artist, Roger Gibson, writes: “The wilderness invites, even requires, a journey.  And that journey, especially if one is lost in the wilderness, brings both the lassitude of uncertainty and the fear of a required commitment to choose a direction.  The hands are positioned to express both of these, the upward facing palm searching for the will to look for a way through and out of the wilderness, and the palm grasping the cross as a sign of commitment to one chosen path.  Together, they are faith.”

You can scroll through the images above to see how Roger added to his painting for each week of Lent.
