We hope that in the turmoil of the world at present some of you were lucky enough this summer to travel abroad.

Some from Christian Voices were able to get to the ancient island of Cyprus.
Here there are huge signs and memories of the early Church, you are even able to walk in the footsteps of The New Testament.

Up in the Troodos Mountains, hidden away but still a huge draw for tourists, lies the Kykkos Monastry.
This is a truly beautiful building, perched on the edge of a mountain. It isn’t the easiest building to wind your way around with many steps and slopes.
However We did find the visit well worth the journey inland.

For example, here is a mozaic of a father greeting a son.

The phrase above reads:

Η Παραβολή Τον ασωτυ γιο

This is thus a depiction of one of the scenes from the Parable of the Prodigal Son, or Lost Son.
A beautiful piece of art, which obviously reminded us of our own play, Lost and Found.

If you’ve come across any works of religious art you’d like to share, just let us know.
Indeed, if you can explain the red ribbon tied between the tree and the house in the background, we’d like to hear it.
