 our unholy week:

all will be well...

eventually

  Our lives are full of delight and joy.  And then...suffering comes.  Gray grief pours down, it covers the canvas of our lives. First ranting and raving, we then curl inward, bent shoulders to the simple daily tasks--get up, get the kids off to school, get to work, figure out whats for dinner, again.  Relentless demands take over.  It is our unholy week that seems to last a year or two or three.  Grief keeps its own calendar.

  In this abyss, we long for some comfort, some word, some truth that will lift us out of our broken-hearted sorrow.  Our Christian faith turns us in a peculiar direction - toward the cross.  An instrument of torture and death.  How in the world can there be any comfort there?

  It's empty.  Three long days and nights.  The universe is never the same.  He's alive.  Jesus Christ is risen.  Therefore we have hope.  Not maybe today or tomorrow but eventually.   

Hold hope,

Rev. Tiare Mathison, Pastor & Soul-Tender
