Pictures for Passiontide

The Pictures Used in Passiontide

Dear URC Devotions

Over the last two weeks our reflections have included various pictures and many folk have asked for more details on them.  Here’s the list of what they were and where you can find them.  Some of you have noted that you can’t see the pictures.  There could be two reasons for this – first, you may have chosen to receive these emails as “plain text” in which case pictures won’t show.  You can change your mailing preferences using the link, below, to html.  Second, your mail programme may not automatically show pictures – in which case you will need to change the settings so it automatically does so.

Here are the pictures we have used.
