Rev. Jimmie Scott
There are so many great metaphorical insights in the celebration of Good Friday in the western world. Some celebrants see it as an opportunity to “get right with God.”
While others see it as a reminder that the individual has it within him or herself to rise above the pain and strains of difficulty in their own lives, and therefore be at peace.
For many others, it is a poignant reminder that they, too, can embrace the power of the infinite in themselves by aligning themselves with Christ.
For me, Good Friday is a reminder to be at peace with the boisterous clanging of a world. A world that at one and the same time contains all that’s good, and all that’s bad. For it is in peace that I find the crucified love within me. The love that has experienced personally and vicariously all the world has to offer.
Such is the journey my friends…
