It has been a long time since I asked myself that question.
Where are you in the story of Christ's Passion?
Can we see God in humiliation? Can we see God in human brokenness?
I don’t have to tell you that we have a hard time giving things up. It’s human nature. And it’s everywhere in the story of Christ’s death.
And this is not something we want to hear. It means that we, too, are responsible for our communal sins, even if we as individuals haven’t committed them.
