I wonder what was on the mind of those first Jesus followers who
witnessed him die agonizingly on a tree? What did they expect for their
world and for their time?
No matter where you are on your spiritual
journey, no matter your faith, I pray this night that you take just a
moment to think about those simple people and how they must have felt
all those centuries ago. May we all be humbled by reflecting on this
Easter season and gain knowledge for our lives and for our world by
remembering those who actually witnessed the Holy Week and the
culminating resurrection event.
May the peace of Christ be with you on
this night as you anticipate.
