Concrete crucifixions

For The Cross: designs & reflections exhibition by commission4mission in The Hostry at Norwich Cathedral I have visually reworked the poetic meditations I wrote for The Passion and those based on the Nine Lessons & Carols readings. Following the inspiration of concrete poetry, I have re-designed both meditations into cross shaped sequences which then explore the cross in content and design. 

The Passion: Reflections & prayers features pictures, poems and prayers by Henry Shelton and I which enable us to follow Jesus on his journey to the cross reflecting both on the significance and the pain of that journey as we do so and published as a double-sided A3 sheet with all the images, haiku-like meditations and prayers laid out in sequence for ease of devotional use.

My alternative Nine Lessons are poetic meditations drawing on the thinking of René Girard in interpreting the Bible readings traditionally used in services of Nine Lessons and Carols.
