I had a conversation with one of my students this week that has given me pause. As we discussed the names for the Friday before Easter, she said something very profound…she said that “Red Friday” is observed as a time to remember Christ’s death from His perspective–His pain, His suffering, His blood shed. She stated that maybe in the West we have “Good Friday,” because we are focusing not on Christ himself, but on the benefits that we received from His death (and ultimately from His resurrection). I love learning from others’ perspectives, and I’ve been considering her words carefully and prayerfully. Listening is good for the soul!
