In Christ there is no Jew or Greek, no slave or free, no male or female, for all of you are one in Christ.

Galatians 3:28

Icons of Reconciliation

I was inspired to post the above thought when it was quoted on an inspirational blog that I regularly read . I wondered what photograph I would use to go with the quote and  I was directed (in my mind) to click on a folder and this image was the first photo in the folder.

I searched the Bishop’s Palace website to view details of the chapel and altar.

The page about the chapel revealed an additional quote that connects and chimes with the quote I was inspired with…

The new altar, made of maple and Ancaster stone, was designed by David John and made by Richard Richardson. The altar stands above engraved stone work by John Rowlands Pritchard, with the text, ‘God was in Christ reconciling the world to himself; and has given us the ministry of reconciliation’. (2 Corinthians 5:18).

The things that I refer to as ‘my strange coincidences’ are at work again…
