Good Friday

Good Friday service...

As the pastor reminded us, although each Sunday throughout the year we remember the cross in various ways, it is on Good Friday that we have the opportunity to set our hearts exclusively on the pain and suffering and death of Jesus. And when we seek out the reality of the cross, we come to a deeper understanding of the reality of how we are blessed.

"And so with thankfulness and faith we rise
To respond, - and to remember
Our call to follow in the steps of Christ
As His body here on earth. 

As we share in His suffering
We proclaim Christ will come again!
And we’ll join in the feast of heaven
Around the table of the King "

from "Behold The Lamb"

second foor slab

Construction continues briskly at the MacEwan site, with part of the second floor slab being prepared for the pour. 
I have discovered that, unlike the other water soluble pens I was using a while back, Papermate pens retain quite a bit of the line even after a wash is applied (at least on the sketchbook I am using now), and they allow me to still retain control over the drawing while enjoying an easy way of adding character.
