That’s how to cope

At a very thoughtful meeting of the College of Canons in Exeter Cathedral yesterday I asked if I could take a photo of Ven. Clive Cohen’s Cope. Clive was an Archdeacon in Cornwall. His Cope is firmly rooted in that Cornish setting and is an image of death and resurrection. The old mines may have died (firmly in the brown landscape) but Cornish life continues to be resurrected (note the change to landscape colour to green). ‘Behold I will make all things new’ – and in the image ‘the new’ is to be found in the Eden Project.

It is a fantastic symbol of resurrection life.

Hilarious – someone on Twitter suggests this looks like a High School Dance – people sitting around the edge waiting to be asked to dance! Can’t seen too many handbags to dance around though…
