Station: Jesus in the tomb


When choosing the station I wanted to depict, I spent a lot of time thinking about all the times I feel like I am “searching” for Jesus in my day-to-day life. How do I know where he is? In my own experiences in TAEHS, one answer I often reflected on was that the three days that Jesus was in his tomb was one fleeting point in time His followers, and we, might have “known” exactly where He was, and His one moment of rest in His own journeys for us. I think of the 12 centers around this sphere as representative of all of us, looking towards our center, Jesus, surrounding Him while He rests, wrapped in the fibers of the labor of our hands, His tomb cradled in a garden. Our own travels spiral one way, and then another, often opposite, in paths that nevertheless form a pattern He always sees, and cherishes.
