For Jon Meacham, as for believers worldwide, the events of Good Friday and Easter reveal essential truths about Christianity. Meacham delves into that intersection of faith and history in this meditation on the seven phrases Jesus spoke from the cross.
Beginning with “Father, forgive them, for they do not know what they do”; and ending with “Father, into thy hands I commend my spirit,” Meacham captures for the reader how these words epitomize Jesus’s message of love, not hate; grace, not rage; and, rather than vengeance, extraordinary mercy. Jon Meacham returns us to the moment that transformed Jesus from a historical figure into the Son of God. Please join us on Wednesdays via Zoom during Lent for a time of study and prayer as we prepare for Holy Week and Easter.
Please email the pastor (Phil.Oehler@pcwoobury.com) for the Zoom link, and to reserve a copy of Jon Meacham’s book by February 1st.
