Today is Good Friday, the darkest of days, and the climax of Lent and Holy Week. It is the day when we watched Jesus being whipped and taunted, then made to wear a crown of thorns. We watched him make his way along the road to Golgotha, all the while having to bear the weight of a heavy wooden cross. And most disturbingly, we watched as he was crucified on that cross. As he gave his last breath, crying out to God, the sky turned black and rumbled with thunder. We were terrified and heartbroken. While Jesus did not turn out to be the Messiah, the valiant savior we had hoped for, still he was our rabbi, our teacher, our friend, our family member, who loved the world and made every effort to show us God's love. Jesus is dead. This is a day of true grief, a grief so deep it is felt throughout Creation. Consider this today and see what you notice. #pwsbeads #dailyintention #lent
