I’ve been meditating a lot about living in the space between “Good Friday” and “Easter Sunday”; living in the “Saturday” between… living with hope, yet having questions and wondering “what if”. It’s a powerful thought to ponder as you consider that the disciples had no context for seeing Jesus crucified. They didn’t know that Easter Sunday was just around the corner. Surely they were afraid. Surely they hoped, but still wondered “what if”. Living with hope does not mean living without questions and even some fear.
In my blog yesterday about God’s Playbook, I asked the question:
What about the day in between? What about “Saturday”? What about the day they just sat. And waited. And wondered. And tried to breathe. And… waited. What about… “the middle”?
As I’ve been catching up on a lot of blogs I read today, it turns out I’m not the only one who has been thinking about “Saturday”. In fact, there are quite a few folks who are sharing their thoughts about living in the space between the crucifixion and resurrection; about “Saturday”. I want to share some of them here with you. These are all GREAT posts. I encourage you to read them and let them build your faith.
