Irenic Thoughts

Irenic. The word means peaceful. This web log (or blog) exists to create an ongoing, and hopefully peaceful, series of comments on the life of King of Peace Episcopal Church. This is not a closed community. You are highly encouraged to comment on any post or to send your own posts.


The Last Supper with 12 Tribes

Artist Hyatt Moore talks about his painting The Last Supper with Twelve Tribes which is in the hall at King of Peace. The 10-foot wide print on canvas of the painting was purchased for King of Peace by Mary Root in memory of her parents. The painting which arrived at King of Peace on this day of the church year, Maundy Thursday, in 2004.

I've spoken to the artist on the phone before when ordering the print and when he talked me through how to build the frame, stretch the canvas and hang it. But now after five years of living with the painting, it's nice to hear him once talking about this work.

Also online today, is the sermon I wrote for use tonight in Episcopal Churches with no clergy, where a lay person will read the sermon I wrote that goes with the text on footwashing. I won't use the sermon myself tonight at King of Peace as we are not using the text on footwashing, but on Jesus' sharing the Last Supper in Luke's Gospel which fits with the Passover service which follows our 6 p.m. communion service. The sermon for The Episcopal Church website is online here: Maundy Thursday.

The Rev. Frank Logue, Pastor
