My Burden is Light |
Like my piece New Life, this picture was done as my contribution to a series of artworks based around the stations of the cross. The artworks have were done by artists from the Northwood area and were displayed in various local venues in the weeks around Easter 2010.
This piece is inspired by the station "Simon helps Jesus carry the cross".
''I am the light of the world''. So says Jesus in John 8v12. But in Matthew 5v14 he says to his followers, ''You are the light of the world''. It seems this is a shared burden... ''Let your light shine before men that they will see your good deeds and praise your father in heaven.''
