Holy Week Reminder

A tweet from Ben Cramer (who I don’t know but this is really good):

We want the war horse
Jesus rides a donkey.

We want the eagle
The Holy Spirit descends as a dove.

We want to take up swords
Jesus takes up the cross.

We want the roaring lion
God comes as a slaughtered lamb.

We keep trying to arm God
God keeps trying to disarm us.
