Last Day of Lent

[Lent ends at sunset today (Black is the colour)]

“By now it was noon. The whole earth became dark, the darkness lasting three hours – a total blackout. The Temple curtain split right down the middle.

Jesus called loudly, ‘Father, I place my life in your hands!’ Then he breathed his last.” Luke 23:43-46 (The Message Bible)

[Easter Vigil starts at sunset (White)]

An (in)famous Australian tourism campaign involved a young woman asking potential tourists, “Where the bloody hell are you?” Jesus could well have asked that of God on this day.

Take time to think about a time when you, or someone you know, felt like that.

Let your stone remind you of this question through today and into tomorrow. Does Easter answer the question in any way for you?
