Do Go Gentle...

Cath did a devotional for our drama group centering on service. It focused on Holy Week, primarily Jesus washing the feet of the disciples.

One thought that really hit the way I've been contemplating the events from the Last Supper through the Crucifixion is the notion of Jesus' gentleness.

Gentleness is often thought of as weak or passive, which doesn't really sit with the actions of Jesus.

The definition that Catherine found for "gentleness": "Strength under control."

Puts a whole new spin on the trials and the cross.

Just my thoughts,
