Forgiveness

I was going to take a picture during our Communion service at church tomorrow, but since I can't guarantee I'll get one, what with being chorister and having a toddler to tend, I decided to instead post this one that I took at Tahoma Park Cemetery in 2006. This cross with Jesus was behind a lectern in a little open-air chapel and I always thought it was really beautiful in its simplicity.


"Then said Jesus, Father, forgive them; for they know not what they do." Luke 23.34

Forgiveness.

This is a piece of needlework which hangs on the wall of a local church - it is the Lord's Prayer in both English and Manx.

Sadly I seem to have part of the relevant line obscured by the reflection of a stained glass window -

Lord's Prayer

The fifth and sixth lines read;

As leih dooin nyn loghtyn, myr ta shin leih
dauesyn ta jannoo loghtyn nyn oi.
