In Lent we meet Jesus through stories about his teaching, his radical inclusion of the oppressed and marginalized and his acts of healing. We also meet Jesus in solitude and at prayer. Through color and texture Jan Laurie brings us not only an image of Jesus but also something of the essence of the Christ whom we seek to follow. The hanging is made of layers and layers of fabric, thread and paint—reflecting the depth of the journey into God.
