GOSHEN — What we can see and touch sometimes leads us to believe in the unseen.
That’s what motivated Brian Cray, associate pastor at Faith United Methodist Church, to commission a full-size replica of the burial cloth of Jesus.
Known as the Shroud of Turin, the original cloth features the imprint of the face, body and wounds of the Christian religion’s central figure. It is guarded and venerated in the Cathedral of St. John the Baptist in Turin, Italy. But local Christians can contemplate Cray’s version of the holy Easter relic, which is on display in the church’s narthex at 22045 C.R. 18.
