"Jesus is taken down from the Cross"
You are dust and to dust you shall return. Gen 3.19
Among those who could do nothing to prevent this unfolding tragedy
were some, including the women who had kept watch while it was going
on, and Joseph of Arimathea, a council member who had dissented from
their verdict, did the only thing left that we can do for those who have died.
Pray for the bereaved and all who minister to them, that they maybe brought
comfort and find peace even as they commend their dead to God's keeping.
