Grace | I am the Way | 11-2000

Grace archive page for this service

If Christ is the Way, then the way is also the destination; therefore this labyrinth has no centre except the blood-red cross, and can be walked in either direction. The items and texts, which are about Christ's life, are placed on it at random.

The sleeping bag contains the 'Jesus in the sleeping bag' poem. The inflatable globe is a visual pun about 'I am the light of the world'.

Nails are provided for you to hammer into the cross, in acknowledgement of your part in Christ's suffering. This is a difficult ritual because of its explicit violence and the loud noise which draws attention. The 'cup of suffering' contains not wine but wine vinegar [John 19:29] - with no label to warn you.
