This is our last lenten podcast for this year, but our plan is to continue the podcast monthly throughout the rest of the year as well. So stay tuned for more stories from our congregation and from other folks in our community. If you’ve got a story to share, let us know.
This week, we’re going to do things a little different. Rather than focus on an interview, we’re going to explore Holy Week with some reimaginings of scripture and some songs. Some artistic license has been taken as we consider what one follower of Jesus may have experienced during this time of trial and suffering.
While we know the end of the story and we look forward to resurrection Sunday and the new life that abounds, we also have the opportunity to walk with Jesus through the suffering and the consequences of speaking truth to power. As we contemplate how Jesus stood up to corruption and injustice, perhaps we will see more clearly the systems and institutions that oppress people today. Perhaps we will hear Jesus again say that faith can move mountains, and perhaps we’ll be encouraged to speak to that mountain. Maybe we'll even give it a push along the way.
