The echo of cries from long ago…

The echo of cries from long ago,
Crucify him!  Crucify him!
 
The sound of hammer on nails.
His body sags with the weight of gravity. 
Blood pours.
Sweat drips.
Tears flow.
One last breath.
God is gone.
Darkness.

Our week began in celebration. 
A parade with palms. 
A cheering crowd.
Its ends in darkness.
Surrounded by betrayal.
Angry cries echo, demanding death.

Life left his body.
He followed through on his promise.
He loved enough to save.
 
We rejected. 
We betrayed.
We left. 

Is there a future?
We cannot see through the grief. 


The story isn’t finished. 
The story is just beginning. 

We see death.  God offers life.
We feel emptiness. God offers comfort.
We leave. God remains.
