Pastor puts light on Easter message | www.tennessean.com


Jay Voorhees, pastor of Antioch United Methodist Church, transformed a cardboard box used to send bodies to crematoria into an altar.

He taped pictures of a crucified Jesus around the rim and placed a big cross atop, surrounding it with candles. The words, “It is finished,” hung to the side. Voorhees put a church pew a couple of feet in front of the altar for visitors to rest and face their mortality.

  1. who is it in your congregation that works for the associated press that you always get into the papers.. too bad no one reads the paper anymore. &:~D

    i hope it goes well, if i get a chance i’d love to come down and see, but LA isn’t in my usual drive. &:~(

    we have an art gallery on “the Last Week” going now through Holy Week that the youth put together. so i am pretty stoked about that one.
