On this day–the uncomfortable day between crucifixion and resurrection, darkness and light, horror and hope–we have the rare opportunity to allow the darkness to sink deeply into our souls. We tend to rush resurrection, searching for light, because we shudder to linger in crucifixion. It terrifies us, forces us to face our own tendency to betray, traumatize and sentence innocent people to hostile imprisonment and undeserved death.
Yes, we do that. It is done among us. Every day. Everywhere.
Sit with the darkeness for a mere 7 minutes today. Do it for the least of these.
