Holy Week …comes to gather us around the one true holy place of the Christian religion, Jesus himself, displayed to the world as the public language of our God, placarded on the history of human suffering that stretches along the roadside. This is a week for learning not management, bargaining and rule-keeping, but naked trust in that naked gift.
I read these words of Rowan Williams’ some years ago. Since then, I have often thought about them.
What is the public language of our God saying to us;
what is Jesus saying to us,
especially in this year of global health crisis
and its resulting physical distancing for most of us, exhausting work and risk for some,
and great loss and tragedy for others?
These reflections take as their starting point a verse or two from the gospel reading for each day of Holy Week from the Revised Common Lectionary.
