Holy Week Hut - 11th April
Tonight we visited the Garden of Gethsemane with Jesus who went there to pray with his disciples.
According to the gospel writer Luke, Jesus wrestled with the path that was set before him to such an extent that he sweated blood as he prayed for God to take this cup from him.
The installation tonight was an ingenious contraption which had a print of Van Gogh's Olive Grove at its heart. This sat on a frame which was surrounded with tubes which constantly trickled drops of red wine down the face of the image.
This painting had particular resonance for the artist as it brought her to tears when she saw it in real life.
The whole installation sat outside the hut where it caught the light from a beautiful sunset.
