A Simple Look at a Not-So-Simple Life

In Lieu of Words

So many other things are taking up my words this week: Holy Week meditations, liturgy writing, sermon writing. So in place of my otherwise occupied words, I thought I would share some images from a recent trip to Mepkin Abbey. Appropriate for this week, I think.

It is my understanding that the scene below was carved out of a tree destroyed by Hurricane Hugo back in 1999. Amazing how death and destruction can be recreated into something beautiful.

May the mysteries and blessings of Holy Week find us, even in the midst of our own busyness, worries, chaos, and pain.

  1. Love the images. Thanks for sharing them.

  2. So glad I made my way to this post on Good Friday. And crazy that Charleston County has school today. What’s up with that? 🙂

  3. Same for Berkeley County. The kids are out every other day, it seems, but somehow not on Good Friday. Go figure.
