HOLY WEEK & EASTER @ PLYMOUTH
Words won't be nearly enough this week. Words have been failing Holy Week since the first Holy Week. Words of theological significance miss the Spirit. Words of evidence & debate miss the point. The words of poets, like gospel writers, come closest, but even they miss the wonder. Easter is not meant to be spoken, but felt - not rationalized, but experienced.
Holy Week is a four-act drama of expectation, challenge, tragedy and triumph.
