(the name, in a way sanitizes what happened),
Jesus’ death; painful, unjust, undeserved- is what Lent has been all leading towards. We say that ‘Jesus died on a cross for the sins of the world’, but that hardly captures it.
My words are inadequate. Tomorrow, I am going to:
– attend a Good Friday service at a local church,
– read some of the Bible sections that tell about the crucifixion
– see some friends
– marvel at the gift of Jesus’ sacrifice
See you on Easter!
