‘I found I could say things with colour and shapes that I couldn’t say any other way, especially those things I had no words for.’ ~Georgia O’Keefe
We all have our own favourite colours. There is usually one colour that always catches our eye and others vary with the seasons. Last month the colour yellow was dominant with daffodils in nearly every garden. This month green dominates with trees and plants pushing forth forty shades of green. Holy Week which we are now beginning is a mixture of all sorts of colours. Some are vibrant, joyful and colourful, while some are dark, bleak and disturbing. The invitation is to face all the colours of Holy Week. It might be easy just to focus in only on the colours we like. Good Friday will challenge all of us to face those dark colours and especially the ones we tend to avoid. It’s all about finding the balance and that somehow in the middle of all the colours of Holy Week God is to be found.
