Good Friday

 "So they took Jesus; and carrying the cross by himself, he went out to what is called The Place of the Skull, which in Hebrew is called Golgotha. There they crucified him, and with him two others, one on either side, with Jesus between them."
John 19: 16 - 18 NRSV

That's all I want to say today. If you want more then Dave Perry has a superb photograph and reflection in Good Friday Snapshot, inluding these words:

" this one life, and now in this solitary death, God is revealed as God is. We see the real cost of Grace displayed in its full and utter vulnerabilityas God gives all that God has and is for the sake of all that will ever be..."

This post is the 45th in a daily series of Lenten and Holy Week reflections based on a Bible reading from the Common Worship Lectionary of the Church of England. this one is based on John 18: 1 - 19: end.
