Crucifixion was an execution so agonizing, a word had to be made up to describe its pain. “Excruciating" is the word, and means, literally, “from the cross”.
And in Luke’s account, it’s from the cross that Jesus prayed two utterly excruciating prayers.
Sunday begins Holy Week: Palm/Passion Sunday (10:00 AM), Maundy Thursday (7:00 PM), Good Friday (7:00 PM), Easter Vigil (7:48 PM), Easter Sunday (10:00 AM). Check out this Rookie Anglican Guide to Holy Week.
Baby Zeke Rees was born last Saturday evening, and not only are we thrilled at this joyous event, but it also creates an opportunity for us as a community to love and encourage the Rees family. How? Food, obviously (they do, after all, have five boys!). Elizabeth Pfenson is coordinating meals for them, and you can participate by following this link.
