Pastor Matthew’s reflections for Good Friday 2021:
Today I read to you the Passion Narrative according to the Gospel of John, the traditional reading for this most solemn and Holy day. I am sad when I read this, for obvious reasons. My heart breaks not only for the suffering that our Lord endured but for the part in it that is undeniably mine and for the sin, hurt and brokenness throughout the world that nails the Beloved of God back up on the cross every day.
Today, the preachers of the gospel are silent...today there is no hope to proclaim, God has died and we are responsible.
