Remembered Lamb

Photographer Peter Stockland encounters a flock of sheep and is prompted to reflection on the risen Lamb. 

Peter Stockland

In the mountainous Cévennes region of southern France, shepherding is a tradition thousands of years deep, marked by the great "summer transhumance" when sheep are moved from plains and valleys to high plateaux where they graze until October. The area was also a crucible for violence during the bloody Wars of Religion when Protestants and Catholics slaughtered each other with rival ferocity. Christ's flock once so bitterly divided lives now in peace as His light illuminates the motes in the mountain air.
