Day 637: Looking at Good Friday

No matter what your religion or beliefs, the very human aspect of Jesus, appeals to almost everyone. Especially his suffering on this day, Good Friday. Here is a poem that makes this point in simple terms.

Looking at Stars - Jane Kenyon

The God of curved space, the dry
God, is not going to help us, but the son
whose blood spattered
the hem of his mother’s robe.
