Holy Week Watercolour from the Word: Wednesday

Isaiah 63...from which a canticle was fashioned in Celebrating Common Prayer for Passiontide.

I thought of Jesus; splendid in crimsoned apparel, dying in the greatness of his strength, mighty to save.

Not treading the winepress in wrath, but because of it.

Lifeblood spatters and stains and we are born again.
