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.
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.
Bishop Ward continues to guide us through Holy Week, as we give thanks for God’s redeeming and overwhelming mercy and grace to us, through the sacrifice of his Son, Jesus Christ.
Bishop Ward encourages us to follow Jesus with our hearts, rather than our heads, as we enter into the last days of Lent .
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.
