Ghost signs (42): Holy ghost signs


Even religious 'advertising' changes with time and produces palimpsests. These panels on the facade of St James', Bermondsey have been overpainted at least once. The first combines 'One Lord. One faith. One baptism' with 'We preach not ourselves, but Christ Jesus Lord'. On the second, 'One God and father of all' has replaced 'Christ Jesus came into the world to save sinners'.
