Faith on Film: Pecos Pueblo

We'll spend Holy Week touring the Pecos Pueblo Ruins.

Perhaps best in Color.  But it was an overcast day, and I did what I could.  Here we are looking out from the Sanctuary through a side door.  These are all Mamiya 6 photos.

Faith on Film: Pomp, Circumstance and Processions

Sorry, no Palm Sunday photos.  So instead we will process through the Glastonbury Pilgrimage, which I attended in 1990. Unfortunately canceled this year due to a lack of funding.  Hopefully they can find a way to have it next year.  it is a wonderful ecumenical event.

The Glastonbury Abbey fell victim the Henry VIII abbey closures and was destroyed.  It is also the fabled burial site of Arthur and Guinivere.

Faith On Film: More Sacred Circles

Labyrinths are symbols of spiritual journeys first appearing in Christianity in the 12th Century.

And represent a modern focus of meditative worship........

A Person in my Picture?

Oddly, I'd never noticed the woman standing in the corner before last night.  Strange that we often see what we expect to see, rather than what's actually there.

Faith on Film: Salisbury Neighbor

We don't discriminate against Pagans here, since honestly many Christian Traditions have very Pagan Roots (for me those are sometimes the best parts).  So we acknowledge an Earlier Salisbury Tradition:

Because some places just seem to be spiritual foci, they are inhabited again and again 
as sites of worship.

Last bit of snow......

Sorry I've been a bit under the weather........

We had our probable 'last' snowfall on Monday.  Last year the persistent late snowfalls ruined my daffodils and tulips.  Hope for better luck this spring.
