Apr. 10, 2020 – sermon

On Good Friday we always read the Passion from the gospel of John. On Palm Sunday, we hear the Passion too, as told in Matthew, Mark, or Luke depending on the year, and, like looking at a sculpture from different angles, we have a different sense of this horrendous day from each of them. Good Friday is illumined by John’s words especially in his use of dark and light. Usually this night we read scriptures taking us through the stations of the cross, extinguishing another candle at each stop, and the room darkens. Finally, the one remaining candle shining in the darkness—is ‘hidden’ behind the altar, not extinguished, and we see its faint flickers dance on the wall. Not extinguished because people of faith know how this comes out, we know that no darkness can overcome the Light of Christ.

Apr. 5, 2020 – sermon

It is said that for one’s soul to come to God we must either travel the path of love or the path of suffering. And really, if we love deeply, we know we risk suffering for that love. Jesus’ procession into his last days dynamically reminds us of this I think we try to shield children from pain and loss as much as we can, including from the pain and messiness of Jesus’ last days. When we’re young it’s understandable to learn such things at a child’s level, and  sometimes children themselves seem to filter out the scary or bad parts; perhaps this is how God protects them. As we grow up we learn this protection no longer serves us, and that yes, bad things can happen to good people.
