A Preacher's Meditation for Wednesday of Holy Week

Preachr's Meditation for Wednesday of Holy Week.png
One only has explored
’The deepmost; but he did not die of it.
Not yet, not yet he died. Our human Lord
Touched the extreme; it is not infinite.

But over the abyss
Of God’s capacity for woe he stayed
One hesitating hour; what gulf was this?
Forsaken he went down, and was afraid.
— Alice Mynell
 

 

We've put together this rich collection of Easter quotations as a free gift for you. As you serve this busy but meaningful Holy Week, may you remember that the resurrection is for you, too.
