It’s not Easter yet in GM, but when it comes, I’ll look forward to the conversations about “Good” Friday. I’m always met with incredulous looks as I’m asked how it’s possible to call the day of Christ’s crucifixion “good.” Here that day is known by another name–Red Friday–for the blood shed.
I’ve learned a lot from these conversations, and I’m thankful for them. It’s good to remember the incredible sacrifice of Christ in all of its terribleness. It’s also a thrill to be able to share that we can be filled with Hope, even on the darkest days, because of the Christ’s goodness to us–the good news of the Gospel.
