As we walk this week with Jesus, the Apostle Paul reminds us that at the end of the journey is the mystery of Easter – resurrection, new life, abundant life, eternal life.
As we journey through Holy Week, let us be aware of the pain as well as the hope and the grief as well as the anticipated joy. We are called to bear the grief and pain of our world even as we witness to the light of Christ to the world.
As followers of Jesus, we are called to be communicators of the Good News of the love, light and grace of God through Jesus Christ.
Bishop Ward greets us with the ancient words – Christ is risen! The Lord is risen indeed!
For Christians, the events of Holy Week lead to the crucifixion and death of Jesus, bringing the ultimate darkness. But death and darkness cannot overcome the resurrection light and life of Easter morning.
Bishop Ward uses Psalm 118 scripture to guide us through Holy Week events from Jesus’ triumphant entrance into Jerusalem on Palm Sunday to his resurrection on Easter morning.
The Lord is risen! He is risen indeed!
Bishop Ward’s prayer for you this day is that your journey in this Holy Week will be a journey of life, of love, of hope, and of joy as she talks about Psalm 118.
