Reading: Isaiah 53: 8-11
Now that we are a few weeks removed from Easter, we might look back and consider how things have changed since the waning days of Lent. For instance, the majority of the people who were at the crucifixion did not care about Jesus' fate. If only they know what we know now! Hindsight is 20/20, of course. But how do you think the people would have reacted if they knew that the resurrection was going to occur? Do you think they would have treated Jesus in a different way?
Playing "what if" history, consider how our view of that time in history would be different if we had cable TV and the internet back then. It's scary to think about, isn't it? --Chad Hershberger, Camp Mount Luther Director
Closing: Write down ways that you want observe Lent differently next year. Are their disciplines you think you should have tried this year that you don't want to forget?
