Lingering on Easter



Why would one man freely accept death by crucifixion?
For love of his friends?
Would you?

Why wash someone’s feet out of love,
only to have them betray and desert you?
Has this happened to you?

And has anybody seen my friend, Jesus?
He’s freed a lot of people.
But it seems they’ve killed him.
I just looked around & he’s gone.

Because of the darkness, we seek the light.
Because of our emptiness, we strive for fulfillment.
Because of our humanity, we sigh for the divine.
And all the while, He’s got us in the palm of His hand.

My life: freely given, unconditionally and unmerited.
Eternal life: promised, paid for at the crucifixion
and guaranteed by the Resurrection.
