This Good Friday members of our congregation volunteered to make their own creations, Stations of the Cross.
As we follow this traditional path of Jesus’ last walk we remember not only His suffering but also the very human needs of those closest to us: our family members and our congregation.
Love flourishes only in the realm of freedom. The perennial doctrine of free will has been under attack, particularly in the last twenty years. Free will has been whittled down to a tiny fragment. Nobody seems to believe they are free. We don’t believe we have personal responsibility, that we are “able” to respond freshly and freely. Thus we play the victim or look for whom to blame, anything so we don’t own our own freedom. But Jesus on the Cross, neither plays the victim nor creates victims. Now that’s free will!
Let me Count the Days: Homeschooling is the freedom to allow our children to develop their own “gift of faith.”
