Creation Reading

I am so excited! Our friend Ray Wu (who has a great eye--he is an amazing artist) is sharing with me some of the photos he took at the Easter Vigil! As I have described here and here, it is the service not to be missed. The creative and dramatic folks pull out all the stops at this one!

This is the finale of the Creation Reading--you can see Adam and Eve there in the middle, resting (she's in her third trimester, which lent humor to the moment when "Adam," hand on her tummy, waggled an eyebrow at the line "Be fruitful and multiply"). The round umbrellas represented the sea, and there are orange jellyfish there among the "waves." The large yellow and white fans represented the sun and moon moving past to signify the end of the seventh day.

Thank you so much for sharing these photos and the description of your services. I was trying to tell my husband (Presbyterian pastor) all about it but you know...a picture is worth a thousand words!!
