Have you ever been on a new road to somewhere, but you weren?t exactly sure where you were going, or how you were going to get there? Our lives are a bit like that right now. We are on a trip that we didn?t plan, and we have no idea where it we will end up.
This morning we are making our way from the garden to the tomb. We will be continuing to read from the Gospel of Matthew, stopping to notice and reflect along the way as we experience once again the arrest, trial, cross, and tomb of Jesus on this Good Friday morning. After we have completed reading and reflecting, we will have a time of confession before we are dismissed into the ?in between time.?
The celebration of the Resurrection of Jesus is something we definitely need in our lives today. We will endure whatever is ahead, because we have a hope that was displayed to us in dramatic fashion through the cruelty of the cross and the empty tomb.
