New Life prayer, Good Friday and Easter thoughts….

This is the week in which we remember the crucifixion of Jesus. On the Wednesday prior to the crucifixion, I imagine the atmosphere was a bit eerie. Jesus had cleansed the Temple and been to Bethany where He was anointed in the house of Simon. The next day the disciples would celebrate the Passover. Jesus...
