Easter is early this year, which means that Lent will be here before you know it. So I’ve added two things you might find useful. In the Images category, there is a new set of slides all based on the liturgical colour of purple or violet. It’s a colour that stands for pain and suffering, but also for triumph and nobility. In the hymn resources, I’ve added a set of slides suitable for use with any Lenten hymn. It’s the first time I’ve added slides for a specific occasion rather than a particular hymn. Let me know how useful this is and whether I should do more of this sort of thing. Your feedback is essential to the growth of this site.
We will leave this open to your comments (unless things get out of hand).
We now have 3,853 images uploaded.
You will not find many slides in the last two categories, “Community” and “Reaching Out”. These will be added in the next few weeks, as well as new slides on a continuing basis in all categories.

On the Photo Gallery page there is a tag cloud. Look through that list for pictures grouped by subject. When you click on a word, the related images appear. click on a thumbnail and the larger version appears. Left click to get back to the thumbnails. Right click to save to your computer. Back button on your browser restores the tag cloud.
We are working on finding a simpler way to search for images on this site. But because of the large database, we are still looking for a solution.
The loading of images is going well. With the photos galleries stocked full of stand screen and wide screen images, our count of images on the site is now 2,796.
Next up – images associated with your favorite hymns.
As of early October we have uploaded more than 1,200 images to the site, but this only gets us part way through the intended listing. The work has started on photos in the standard screen width. Wide screen will come later. Plus we have many slides for hymns, so stay tuned.
