Broken and Beautiful

The Light of Christ Church family in Nanaimo recently shared in the making of a new processional cross. Member Kent Morgan created the wooden frame, and then invited the congregation to participate in its creation by adding shards of glass.

The Celtic form of the processional cross reminds us of our call to mission in the apostolic tradition of the Celtic missionaries of the 5th and 6th centuries. “The shards of glass symbolize how sin has affected each one of us, and the brokenness that results,” shares Kathy King, rector of Light of Christ. “But in sharing and bringing our brokenness to the cross, we reveal the healing and beauty that is found together in Jesus.”

The Light of Christ Church worships weekly in Nanaimo at 10:30 AM.
