Good Friday



Today is Good Friday.  It’s not Good Good Friday as in the beginning of the weekend (which I overheard being explained between friends at Barclay’s today at lunch).  Rather it’s Good because of the paradox of the death of Jesus (remembered today) as somehow being good – some sort of catharsis for the universe that undoes and begins to unravel the vicious cycle of death, destruction, violence and revenge.  At CAPC we’re celebrating by remembering the story tonight at 7pm, with the cross we annually place in the garden.  This year it’s crowned with a crown of our burdens – our naming of the brokeness in our world and social system – made at Ash Wednesday by our community, placed around the head of the cross.

If you’re interested in reading the story – or listening to it (like we did at noon) – you can do so online
