Remember That Day

Remember That Day


It seems always at this time of year that the paintings which come to me are about Easter. Starting early in spring, my mind becomes flooded with images of women carrying flowers to church and thoughts of Easter…

In this painting, The Angel of Resurrection holds 12 calla lilies, one to remember each of the 12 apostles (St. Peter, St. James (son of Zebedee), St. John (son of Zebedee), St. Andrew, St. Philip, St. Bartholomew, St. Mathew, St. Thomas, St. James the Less (son of Alphaeus), St. Jude, St. Simon (the Zealot), and St. Mathias (who replaced Judas Iscariot).

I hope this painting brings you a few moments of joy and serves as a reminder of that day when the angel rolled away the stone and declared “He is risen!”

The Episcopal Café seeks to be an independent voice, reporting and reflecting on the Episcopal Church and the Anglican tradition.  The Café is not a platform of advocacy, but it does aim to tell the story of the church from the perspective of Progressive Christianity.  Our collective sympathy, as the Café, lies with the project of widening the circle of inclusion within the church and empowering all the baptized for the role to which they have been called as followers of Christ.

The opinions expressed at the Café are those of individual contributors, and, unless otherwise noted, should not be interpreted as official statements of a parish, diocese or other organization. The art and articles that appear here remain the property of their creators.
