The Three Trees

24 January 2010

 

The trees become the crosses of crucifixion.  The central tree representing the Christ has the most light shining on it.  The one to the left with somewhat less light represents the one who reprimands the unrepentant thief ie the one to the right which is the darkest.  However some light still falls on the third tree.  Beyond them are the light and colours of paradise.
In the agony of darkness, light breaks through.
In the pain of desolation, hope is found.
In death itself, life awaits.

Living God, you are within and beyond this life
   and the death that awaits us,
give us an awareness of your presence
  that we may hold on to the hope we find
   in the companioning, suffering,
   dying and resurrecting Christ.
