Altar Table: Words from the Cross

Altar table display depicting the words of Christ from the cross by Gail West.

The congregation of Community United Methodist Church of DeBary, Florida was blessed by the artistry of Gail West this Lenten season. Gail designed this altar table display to accompany a sermon series on Jesus’ words from the cross.

Gail West describing her work:
The seven crosses displayed on the altar represent the seven last words of Jesus Christ while on the cross. They are in rugged medium symbolizing Jesus’ 40 days in the wilderness. The smaller “like” crosses represent the three crosses of Calvary.

I also see…
a homespun cloth representing Jesus’ robe, the one the soldiers gambled for
twisting vines representing the crown of thorns
