As we enter Holy Week, I am reflecting on the friends that were around Jesus as he made the final walk to Jerusalem. In that motley crew of disciples we don’t often hear the names of the women who surrounded Jesus. We know his mother was there, and Mary Magdalene. We hear of other women like Susanna. Yet the focus is often on the male disciples with Jesus.
We invite you to join us next week, as we travel with Jesus toward the cross and resurrection. The journey to Easter is about how unexpected endings and unexpected beginnings open us to the possibilities God gives each of us.
