On the way home from work today, I was waiting at an intersection to make a right turn while the oncoming left turn traffic passed by. The last vehicle was a FedEx truck that was going along pretty fast as if to squeak by before losing the right of way. As the truck was finishing it’s turn and I started my turn, I noticed a small brown box skidding in my direction from the center of the intersection just before it hit the concrete island between the main road and my right turn lane. As I merged onto the road, the FedEx truck came to a stop in front of me and the driver jumped out and started running back to where the liberated package had come to a rest. Oops!

During the Lenten season this year–the time of the Church calendar where we especially mourn for our sin—my church installed a sculpture by one of our members in the sanctuary.

Here’s how the artist, Liz Wheeler, describes it:

Sin, brokenness and death are all we have without Christ. Like a tornado sweeping through our lives, sin is terrifying and completely life-shattering. Thankfully we have Christ who came to fix our broken lives by resisting the temptation to sin and by sacrificing his own life for ours. “I have come into the world as a light, so that no one who believes in me should stay in darkness.” (John 12:46)

In keeping with the meaning of Easter, the sculpture—as a symbolic representation of sin—was removed between the Good Friday service and Easter Sunday.
