Good Friday

Friday 6th April 2012
Hot Cross buns, not be be eaten until Good Friday remembering Jesus' death on the Cross
(But because we like them, we will continute to eat some after Good Friday.  No Easter Eggs till Sunday, though.  What's the point of having symbolic food if we don't reserve it for the symbolic occasions?)
     Today is really the most solemn day in the Christian calendar.  Jesus' execution on a cross shows God's total involvement with humanity: divine love willing to share every aspect of our lives, including suffering and death.  So we can be encouraged by realising that God understands what we go through.
     Celebrating Resurrection on Easter Day will be all the more joyful for the people who attended meditations in the various churches between 12 noon and 3 o'clock (commemorating the three hours that Jesus hung on the Cross).
