Grace and peace to you on this Good Friday.
How could this Friday be called “good”? Steve Garnaas-Holmes suggests that it wasn’t that Jesus was killed; it was something about the way he faced his end:
That in love he was free of their anger,
that his tenderness was impervious to their brutality,
that he had become from a world they could not breach,
that aflame with love he was not consumed,
that he had given himself to them more wholly than they could
either fully receive or prevent was already resurrection.
