see goodness in the land of the living. :::
hear music in the key of the life. :::
know and be still.
"The incarnate hope of Christian belief must take care that its symbols are not used as idols and fetishes out of fear of suffering and refusal of the cross." - Jurgen Moltmann
...we forget or gloss over the radical reality of following Christ.
We forget that Jesus was indicted as a blasphemer of God, a transgressor of the law, and a political insurrectionist, and then nailed to an instrument of death in a place they called "the place of the skull" because it was where they carried out public executions. How do we forget that!?
