The faculty reflection for this day of Holy Week is from Terry Ewing, Senior Associate for Brite Advancement.

The day begins in stillness, and finds its way to night.

The darkness of the morning, gives in to light but never quite.

The morning refuses to grow up straight: missing steps and dropping balls, fumbled words and broken plans.

Without a place, without a sound the darkness winds round and round.

The One is captured and marched away.

Is Hope defeated?

Is Love thrown down?

May the darkness of this time reveal the new day yet to come.

May the glory that is hidden be the glory that is yours,

On this day.

Each day.

Special thanks to Dan and Sandy Owen and the Ralph E. Stone Fund for Religion, Theology and the Arts for the new artwork displayed on the 2nd floor of the Harrison Building. The pieces were acquired during their Owens’ many years of service to the church in Africa and the framing and display of the prints was provided by the Ralph E. Stone Fund for Religion, Theology and the Arts. For more information about the display, please visit. http://brite.edu/brite-presents-art-as-catechesis/

The faculty reflection today is by Shelly Matthews, Associate Professor of New Testament.

“Then Jesus gave a loud cry and breathed his last . . . . There were women watching from a distance . . . .“ Mark 14.37, 40a

“Each of us wishes for one like the Magdalene to go down with us into death, to stay with us to the end. . . .” Jane Schaberg, The Resurrection of Mary Magdalene.

Judas betrayed, Peter denied, and the other male disciples forsook and fled, but on the day of the state execution, the women were watching. While some have tried to diminish the significance of their witness, by stressing that they watched from afar, or suggesting they were at less risk than the male disciples, I take it as a sign of the depth of their courage, fueled by the strength of their love for their wrongly executed friend.

Would that we could love with such courage, keeping watch, staying to the end.
