I'm playing around with designs to represent the seasons of the Church Calendar. The Calendar is a way of telling our story, reminding us who we are and are meant to be, enabling us to live out our own part in what has been described as faithful improvisation.
In the Calendar, seasons and days are represented by different colours:
Advent and Lent: Purple
Christmas, Epiphany and Eastertide: White
'Ordinary Time': Green
Pentecost, days associated with the Holy spirit and/or with martyrs: Red
Today I've been working on two 'White' designs:
the Pantocrator, representing the risen Lord Jesus, Ruler of All, for Eastertide;
and the Theotokos, or God-bearer, as Mary was in a particular sense and we are called to be, for Christmas and Epiphany.
What do you think?
