Hope you are having a Good Friday

Today is Good Friday- the day we remember Jesus’ crucifixion.  Although it sounds inappropriate (and kind of rude), Good Friday is one of my favorite Holy Days.  It’s a serious day and it’s not about us at all.  Christmas and Easter are busy holidays that require a lot of coordination and planning while Good Friday is a time for quiet reflection.  A time to process.  A time to think.  I mean, no one bakes a cake for Good Friday.  (After reading this blog post, I realize that maybe I am just lazy and don’t want to host a party?)

In all seriousness … have a mindful and reverant Good Friday.  Today we have the time to stop and focus on Jesus’ radical revolution refocusing the world on love, new life, equality and forgiveness.

    After the Maundy Thursday service last night, I’m thinking that Maundy Thursday/Good Friday might mean more to me Easter weekend than Easter Sunday itself. I guess b/c these services help me understand and appreciate Easter Sunday better. Thanks for the good Good Friday reflection Hosanna Street!

    Yes! I agree Tara. As our minister says: It’s not just Easter Sunday It’s an entire story that starts with Palm Sunday.
