GOOD FRIDAY
I will never fully understand the theological basis for calling a day of crucifixion a “good” day. Not to mention how to explain it to young children. Here’s a blog I found which matches my discomfort, not only in the name, but in the challenges of including children in a discussion which is profoundly disturbing. In light of the many other disturbing images our children are exposed to on a daily basis – other innocents losing their lives – we can only pray that the hopeful message of Easter is heard above the din.
