ON WE GO! - April 17, 2019
Submitted on April 17, 2019
For the past few weeks, I have been blessed every day to look out of my office window and see the purple cloth hanging on a large cross erected on Giddings Lawn. For Christians, that is a humbling reminder of the sacrificial path Jesus walked to a death that was on our behalf.
Yet, we know that as the greatest ending to any story, Jesus was raised from the dead through the action of a loving God. Death was overcome, and the possibility of a blissful eternal life became a reality.
In the days directly ahead, the purple cloth will be exchanged for a white cloth symbolizing the victory of Jesus’ resurrection. For this most sacred season for Christians, we give thanks. Praise be to God!
On We Go!
