Good Friday: We are the Body of Christ, Broken and Shared Today

Jesus ministered to and welcomed all to the table including tax collectors, sinners, women, the poor, the broken and the shunned. He confronted the the unjust  structures of his time, thereby, alienating  religious and political powerful authorities of his time. They executed him.
Jesus' death and resurrection shows that ultimately, God's infinite passionate love, compassion and liberation will triumph over  every injustice, sorrow, hurt, disappointment and evil in our world.
We are called to live Christ's message of love, justice, empowerment and transformation in our world by our service to everyone we encounter. We are  the Body of Christ, broken and shared today! Let us recognize that the Christ Presence everywhere we turn, and love one another with the Heart of God.
