RantWoman spent Palm Sunday meeting for worship meditating about whether a message for Holy week needed to come out of her mouth. The answer apparently was no. Most of the rest of the messages RantWoman hoped to knit together have vanished from RantWoman's memory. RantWoman was going to knit the thoughts on her mind into the message stream.Anything remaining has gotten dammed up in a mental logjam about one specific message, a message that gets its own post.
The message that did not make it out of RantWoman's mouth was about all the characters in the Holy Week story who did not exactly live up to what one might hope from them, and maybe how that is the point, the holiness of the story. The message most assureadly is still in the air at least around RantWoman, but now it's Good Friday. RantWoman has some neighborhood topical options to go to CHURCH, but work beckons. Beckons? Quoting a former RantWoman work colleague, Jesus is dead and you expect me to WORK?
Well, yes, sort of. The world is all mixed up politically. Jesus is officially dead on his cross after running afoul of the powers that be and for RantWoman's trouble, God has served up the temptation to post the following item about an ardent atheist at the CPAC conventionand to let her readers make of it what they will! Bless us Oh God and all divinely twisted sense of humor.
