Lenten Contemplations - Episode 1

Luke 23:34

Jesus' first words from the cross offer forgiveness to his persecutors - and to all of humanity.  Andrew McGowan - in his book - Seven last Words - offers that Jesus' greatest work happens on the cross and this he initiates this work by forgiving instead of choosing another form of power.  God forgives in a manner that human beings do not usually nor can typically fathom.  How then can we follow in Jesus' manner of being.  How shall we balance Christian justice with Christ-like forgiveness. Both virtues are important to the Christian religious traditions.  

This first contemplation offers some possibilities in understanding these concepts as well as moments for musical and silent reflection.  We welcome questions and comments.  We also invite you to watch the video version of this podcast on Christ Memorial Episcopal Church's YouTube webpage.  The "visio divina" portion is quite meditative.
