I know Easter is almost over, but I wanted to share how our Methodist church celebrated Easter today. Besides having Easter lilies and these calla lilies in the sanctuary, we also had a cross decorated with flowers. It started out like this, or almost like this. I forgot to take a shot before we added the greenery and baby’s breath. A church member made the wooden cross many years ago and another church member wrapped it with chicken wire for this occasion.
As people came in the sanctuary, they were handed a flower to put on the cross as a symbolic representation of new life at Easter and the resurrection of Jesus.
And this is how it looked when the last flower was added. I think more churches are doing flower-covered crosses for Easter. What a lovely way to celebrate this most important day.
