Today is Good Friday on the Christian calendar, a day on which Christians around the world remember that Jesus was crucified on the Friday before Easter. In some traditions the day is observed with solemn, even mournful worship services in which Christians acknowledge that his death was for our sins and those of the whole world. In some places a time of silence is observed mid-day in stores and other community locations to encourage people to remember the tragedy of Christ’s death. Some people fast on the day; other people make “hot cross buns,” a roll with a cross on top formed by icing. Aside from the commemoration of the day, how does Good Friday make a difference in your life? What about the original event, remembered by so many, is “good” for you? Can we really celebrate Easter if we “ignore” Good Friday?
