    2nd April 2017 – Passion Sunday

    When you were a little boy, Jesus,

    growing up with sisters and brothers

    with a loving mother,

    those who would come to be your closest friends

    did not know you.

     

    When you were the young man your family relied on

    you made beautiful things from wood,

    so we imagine,

     

    But then, you went into the desert,

    and when you came back

    you were

    filled and fuelled

    with a purpose which revitalised

    so many people.

     

    They thought that this would,

    perhaps go on for ever!

     

    But always you knew that journey’s end

    would be

    Death.

    A young life freely given

    that all might have life,

    life in all its fullness

     

    And, in the end,

    the giving of that life

    was bitterly obedient,

    and yet beyond our understanding –

    forgiving

    to the ends of time itself

     

    We, hesitantly, kneel at the Cross

    and weep for a world which is still cruel.

    We give thanks for the life

    poured out in mercy

    With so much love

    that we might

    Live

     

    Thank you Jesus

    Amen
