Crucifying Jesus Again and Again

March 31, “Crucifying Jesus Again and Again John Donne-Tuesday-Holy Week

“For the message about the cross is foolishness to those who are perishing, but to us who are being saved, it is the power of God. For it is written, “I will destroy the wisdom of the wise, and the discernment of the discerning I will thwart. For God’s foolishness is wiser than human wisdom, and God’s weakness is stronger than human strength.” I Corinthians 1:18-19, 25

“To make of his story something that could neither startle, nor shock, not terrify, nor excite, nor inspire a living soul is to crucify the Son of God a fresh.” Dorothy Sayers

The early Christians, in hope of the Resurrection tended to the sick. Last night as I walked the streets I saw person after person sleeping in the doorways–the doorways of the wealthiest part of town. New York’s homeless population is in epic proportions–so who are those whom you can serve without fear, in hope of the Resurrection? Name the way you can help bring about the Reign of God, and work toward that hope.

Let us pray:

“God of mercy. Make us wise with your foolish love. God of salvation open our eyes again to see the power of your grace. God of all who seek to follow, guide us in your faithful way.” Amen.

As vegans, we’re a force for healing and compassion every day and at every meal. Our way of living exemplifies mercy and promotes freedom, and offers opportunities to unfold wisdom and help heal our world.

These are true causes for an abiding sense of joy. Even in the midst of grief and outrage at our culture’s cruelty, we can be glad that our ability to feel is reawakening.Dr. Will Tuttle
