Where was God During Lock-Down? Congregation’s Photos Show Unique Perspectives
Twenty-six framed photos adorn the perimeter of the Reception Room, each offering a unique perspective on a common experience: lock-down. The congregation was asked to submit photos that showed where they found God’s presence during the difficult months of the pandemic. The responses range from images of nature and solitude, to family gatherings, and children at play.
“I submitted photos of my grandchildren,” said Di Pagel, photo above. “I find children to be a gift – it’s a blessing to be around children. I have a particular fondness for photos of my grandchildren that show them unposed, acting the way children do without being prompted. In one of my photos, the children are contemplating the beauty of nature. I wonder what they are thinking, and it reminds me of my own childhood, and times when I would do the same thing.”
The exhibit will be in stages, with new photos added in October. Anyone wishing to submit an entry may send images to Pastor Matt.
