Just researching some ideas for how best to design the Good Friday poster for our church and I came across this from Mars Hill. Just wondered what your reactions might be to it. It certainly isn't something that I could show my children. They understand what happened on the cross and have asked questions about it but this could really frighten them. I remember when I was eleven and I comprehended for the first time properly, I think, the horror. I understood as best as an eleven year old can what had happened on the cross as I began to think about preparing for my confirmation.
I remember last year, the almost agonising wait for Easter Sunday as we all took part in the live drama around the estate at Le Abbey playing out the events and the Good Friday event was very profound. Christians at Mars Hill must really go through it at Easter time and whilst, in contrast, many British Anglicans, hide their emotions behind their stiff upper lips, I wonder if Mars Hill might be taking things a bit too far.
