It looked all wrong: a violent priest prophesies about Jesus, and a crucified criminal defends him. Crowds claim a foreign emperor, Caesar, but reject their real King. Almighty God is beaten, mocked, and crucified in order to save the lowly sinner.
The story of Jesus’ passion (suffering) is filled with ironies, that is, moments when reality and appearance clash. Yet these moments give us a chance to ponder the meaning of Jesus’ suffering, and to consider what it means for God to suffer so sinners might live.
Join us for our midweek Lenten series, "Ironies of the Passion".
This series will take place every Wednesday and will include dinner at 6:00pm and a contemplative worship service at 7:00pm.
