What could this be? Let’s see,… prisoner, Middle East, tortured by foreign soldiers, arms outstretched like crucifixion…. yes, this is Jesus.

Just a reminder that torture injures both the torturer and the torturee. Whether we as a nation assign the task of torture to our own armed services or have it outsourced to secret foreign locations, we create double injustice.

The weekend isn’t all somber though. Whether you are observing Holy Week in a church, observing the plants in your yard spring up in preparation for Earth Day, or just observing your children, this is the time to reflect that life creates itself anew.
