Have you ever tried to come up with the perfect departing words or phrase as you left a room? Usually it's hours (or days) later when you slap your forehead and exclaim, "THAT's what I should have said!" For my fellow Seinfeld fans out there, think of George and his "Jerk Store" comment.
There's a good reason why people work as crafting just the right closing remarks: often those are the ones that leave the biggest impact. Think about final scenes in movies and stories -- the hero and heroine riding off into the sunset, "they all lived happily ever after", etc.
Jesus final words from the cross will be the focus of our sermons during the next few weeks leading up to Easter. This Sunday, March 16th, we'll look at his prayer, "Father, forgive them, for they don't know what they're doing." It's good news that we need to remember! I hope to see you there.
