"Christ Weeps Over Lazarus" (2019) by Michael Cook. Charcoal on paper. 53 x 40cm. Original gifted to the  Community of the Resurrection in Derbyshire, UK. 
When Christ wept for Lazarus, he already knew he would resurrect him, but he wept anyway (John 11:35). This week, we wept for teachers forced to return to schools during COVID-19. We wept for curators confronting racial injustice at American museums. We wept at the news of John Lewis and Ruth Bader Ginsburg. We also celebrated: delayed school reopenings, museum appointments, and artist commissions. We wept, celebrated, and advanced. That cycle makes Michael Cook's "Christ Weeps Over Lazarus," our art of the week.
