Help us to be there, O God.
At least as close as we can get.
Somewhere among the crowd who shout hosanna and wave their palm branches. Somewhere in that upper room as bread is broken and wine is poured and a meal is shared. Somewhere in that garden with it anguished prayer and sleepy disciples. To the betrayal and the denial and the trial before Pilate.
To the cross.
Help us to find our way through these days before us that we might also find our way to the promises of the resurrection. Amen.
Paul Alcorn is the Pastor of Bedford Presbyterian Church in Bedford, NY.
