Sojourners Verse & Voice – 30 March 2018

March 30, 2018

verse of the day

Then Jesus said, “Father, forgive them; for they do not know what they are doing.” And they cast lots to divide his clothing.

– Luke 23:34

voice of the day

Because Good Friday is not about us trying to “get right with God.” It is about us entering the difference between God and humanity and just touching it for a moment. Touching the shimmering sadness of humanity’s insistence that we can be our own gods, that we can be pure and all-powerful.

– Nadia Bolz-Weber

prayer of the day

Irony of all ironies,

you call us worth it—

the lifetime of listening

and healing

and teaching the world

that everything is different than we thought it was.

There was something about you there on that cross, that Good Friday.

Jesus, may we spend the rest of our days trying to find out what exactly it was.

Amen.

– Excerpt from “A Prayer for Good Friday”
