We always read the Passion in place of a sermon on Palm Sunday. I told Todd a few weeks ago that I don't like reading it in church, specifically because as a group, we read aloud "Crucify him! Crucify him!" and it makes me so sad. I like to think that I wouldn't have been one of the people saying that 2000 years ago, but chances are good that I would have been. Either way, Todd reminded me that that's the way things were supposed to go, that Jesus had to die in order to be resurrected. But oh man, am I thankful that Easter comes on the heels of Good Friday.

I love all this rich theological discussion you and Todd are having at home, Betsy! What a cool thing that you guys can do that together.

Good Friday and Easter do create this balance that we need -- but you're right -- you can't have one with out the other. Such is the state of humanity...
