Reading: Psalm 142
With Mary, his mother, who brought Hope into the world.
With Malchus, the high priest's slave, who was healed by His hand.
With Peter, beloved disciple, who can't believe the denial.
With the other Marys, who are preparing for what to do next.
With Joseph of Arimathea, who gave the final resting place.
With Nicodemus, who first came by night, insisted on a hearing, and now has prepared Jesus' body.
But most of all we wait with the other disciples, reflecting on the events of yesterday, feeling a sense of loss and bewilderment. The black Friday skies have turned to a gray Saturday. Will there ever be a bright sun-day again?
To see what God will do next.
--Chad Hershberger, Camp Mount Luther Director
Closing: Watch Kelley Mooney's rendition of "Hallelujah" by Leonard Cohen. I've always liked his song, but now like even better her version even better. I think Kelley's lyrics are just so meaningful.
