Who do we worship?

Headless Christ

Sally shares a poem, Christ in Majesty...who, in fact, do we worship? and what does it mean?

robbed of voice,

and power,

this untouching,

unseeing Christ,

is safe,

enthroned, (entombed)

in stone,

he receives our worship,

and we unchanged,

and unchallenged


for we have done our duty...

We have done our duty... I am asking myself tonight how many churches this headless handless stone Christ represents, and I don't like the answer.

Thanks again to Dave Perry for the image and the thoughts.
