The stones in ancient graveyards provide a fascinating study. On one, you will see a heart turned upside down. Someone who was loved has died.
On another, you will see a ghastly sight – a skull gnawing on a femur bone. Death is hungry for everyone!
On a third, you will see a snake forming a circle by eating its tail! The snake reminds us of death. What about the circle?
Its perfect shape reminds us of eternity and the promise of eternal life treasured within the walls of this ancient kirkyard.
Christ has died! Christ is risen! Death is swallowed up in victory! The snake has swallowed its tail!
