No rejection is indicative of our divine destiny. The power of the resurrection is the power to step outside the molds of safe assimilation to be the authentic presence God created us to be.
We hold our breath and wait: "For the world now groaning, is there life? Is there life for you, Holy One?"
Quinn G. Caldwell
Some of us look away from Good Friday violence because we're too pampered to handle it. Some of us look away because we're tired of seeing it every day on the streets and in our homes.

Jesus could have said anything at the last supper. He could have told his friends to avenge his death. He could have raged about the unfairness of life. Instead he said, "Love one another."
More and more, we live in front of cameras and screens, surrounded as much by the witness of the cloud as a cloud of witnesses. How do we live when Jesus is your only witness?
John A. Nelson
The-One-Who-Enlarges takes on those who would make God small. The Creator-Who-Is-Still-Shaping-Me defies those who think in terms of caste or tribe.

You know grief and loss. You've been hurt a thousand times. As impossible as it might feel, trust that blessing is already embracing your anguish and that God will indeed turn the page.
