good friday in the park - labyrinth

as part of a good friday installation/service in the park, we made this flagging tape labyrinth... took about 1.5 hrs to setup, and we left it in the park till easter sunday... ended up looking like laser lights in the darkness... see more pics from the event on my flickr site at

easter dawn

easter dawn, originally uploaded by josh lyon.

he is risen...!

so, we didn't want to miss the easter dawn service put on by the catholic worker in toronto.... so we had our own down by lake ontario, at 6:15am.

people from next came out, along with an accidental double-booking from the folks at central baptist, who graciously joined in. I'm wiped, but it was worth it! Happy Easter!


Hi Jay,

I'm really sorry about the misuse of your photographs. I will not post the images on my blog or anywhere else... I did assume too much about a use that I thought you would approve, partially based on your posting of 2 Peter 3:10... (see Acts 4:32)

I would never assume use of anyone's artwork for commercial purposes and did not see the "all rights reserved" tag... I'll make sure to be more careful in the future and again apologize for any offense caused.

much appreciation for your work,
