St. James, Sarasota, Lenten Tree Graced the Season

This year we did not do the traditional cross with flowers for Easter. Instead, we did a Lenten Tree. Each week had a liturgy and represented parts of Christ's ministry suffering & death. On Easter, the tree was covered in butterflies representing resurrection & redemption. The ornaments were handmade by our church family. The only thing missing is the crown of thorns which was replaced by a butterfly, but was wrapped with lilies and hung on the hanging cross.
