A Blessed Good Friday to you all. Last fall, I was in the Holy Land for 15 days, a time that spanned also the presidential election. The intensity of that time and seeing how our nation’s political process captivated the world was heightened by being in the place where Jesus lived, was executed, and rose.
That experience could not help but change my perspective on Good Friday forever. As I attend to this Good Friday, I pray that all those who follow Jesus will look to his witness and that of his disciples, particularly the faithful women who stayed. That standing at the foot of the cross we will once more commit ourselves to peace. Not passive but active peace and love, love that is risky, not focused on security but on kenosis, love that resulted in the lamb of God being crucified. #GoodFriday #HolySepulcre
