Prayer to renew our commitment

Acts 10:39 “They put him to death by hanging him on a tree.”

In recent weeks, we again have witnessed how we (because I am complicit) continue to respond differently to the death of whites and blacks and the reality that there are always voices ready to shout “crucify” against the One who names our brokenness–our sinfulness that separates us from God’s desire to know and be known by all God’s children. I confess as a preacher I want an Easter celebration that is predictable and joyful, not one that confronts controversy and proclaims unpopular truth and ends with fear and confusion like what the women experience at the empty tomb.

Good Friday
