Wednesday of Holy Week
This Holy Week, I’m posting brief daily reflections inspired by some famous (or not so famous) statues. Today’s picture is of an artist at work: Contemporary artist Nathan Jackson (born August 29, 1938). Jackson is an Alaska Native Tlingit artist, best known for his totem poles. This is of Jackson at work.
Totem poles, contrary to what many European explorers stated, are not objects of worship. Rather, they are stories – stories of culture, of history, and of family. We too have our stories, and this week we tell our own tale: of a God who loves all, and who walked the earth, and who died to save us. May that story be part of YOUR story, this week and every week.
