Somehow the gray, dripping clouds are appropriate for Holy Week. We are approaching the darkest day on the Christian calendar. The opposition to Jesus is gaining strength. There is a sense of foreboding hanging in the air. Yet, these words, found in both the Old and New Testaments, describe the nature of God’s servant-savior. When our spirits are down, he will tenderly hold us, God’s Will will be done… Stay awake.
a bruised reed he will not break,
and a dimly burning wick he will not quench;
he will faithfully bring forth justice.
The Lord be with you.
(scripture can be found in Isaiah 42:3 & Matthew 12:20)
