Flowers in Church

© Godric Godricson


In the past I've shown flowers in Churches and that seems OK. I don't show flowers on graves as that seems morally inappropriate as the flowers are a sign of grief and a sign of remembrance and that is an entirely private matter and not to be 'gate crashed' in any manner. Flowers in Church always reminds me of a sort of animism where we place greenery in the Church as a reminder of the world outside. The flowers are a sort of offering to the ancestors in this Christian cult of death.

Is this hard on Christianity? You decide!
