|Jesus at the tomb Vladimir Borovikovsky|
Spending time in the tomb is risky business.
Spending time in the tomb calls for intentionality. We would rather life be all sunshine and puppy dogs. But that isn't really real.
Spending time in the tomb of despair, disappointment, grief, has its own clock. For some it is short lived, for others...it can seem to go on and on.
Spending time in the tomb is authentic to our human experiences. Even God, after tearing the temple curtain in two spent time in the tomb.
and sometimes, on occasion, we need to confront whatever is causing us to be in the tomb with some holy humor.
After the winter that will not end, amidst snow piles and frozen ground...I am wearing sandals... I have been waiting patiently and today enough is enough.
praying for peace as you journey through this Holy Saturday.
in Christ, together,
