And So it Begins..

Holy Week is here - our annual walk with Jesus Christ to the Cross, the grave and beyond. It is a powerful time. Yet how often do we take it for granted.

Do we know deep in our hearts what this all means? Sometimes. We know Christ's Passion in our bones when we are going through suffering in our own lives and these moments in the liturgical year intersect with that suffering.  Yet it is so easy, when everything is just fine and life is stable, to distance ourselves from the suffering and death of Jesus.

This powerful short film from Spirit Juice Studios reminds us that if we truly listen to the Passion this week with our whole hearts, Jesus can break into our complacency.

May you have a blessed Holy Week - filled with conversion moments that pull you deeper into the heart of Jesus.

  1. You're so right. It's easy to distance ourselves from the Passion. That's why it's good to read it every year at Good Friday and meditate on it at that service. It brings it home to you once again. We need those reminders every year because it's our nature to forget...especially with the things of God.

    I like that video too.
