From THE VALLEY BREEZE:
Residents in the area of Lowe's say they've been inspired by yet another image that could be seen as having spiritual qualities, this one appearing to show Jesus on the cross. The image is visible in a silver maple tree on the Amelia Court property of Brian Quirk, a man who frequently writes letters to the editor criticizing Mayor Charles Lombardi.
Quirk said people can believe it or not, but the image inside the small oval growth, measuring about two inches wide and a little more than three inches tall, doesn't require much imagination to see Jesus.
"Its ability to evoke a spiritual sense of awe is immeasurable," said Quirk, a non-practicing Catholic.
Well, the fact that he is a critic of the bullying Republican mayor of North Providence does make him a reliable witness. So I think I'm going to give this one the big thumbs up. Definitely the arm of Jesus. No doubt about it.
On the other hand, if you have seen the film, "The Hand," you may have another suggestion.
