It was nine o’clock in the morning when they crucified him.
The inscription of the charge against him read, “The King
of the Jews.” And with him they crucified two bandits, one
on his right and one on his left. Those who passed by
derided him, shaking their heads and saying, “Aha! You
who would destroy the temple and build it in three days,
save yourself, and come down from the cross!”
Mark 15:25-30

Good Friday is not about us trying to "get right with God."
It is about us entering the difference between God and
humanity and just touching it for a moment. Touching the
shimmering sadness of humanity's insistence that we can
be our own gods, that we can be pure and all-powerful.
Nadia Bolz-Weber
Forgive us, crucified Christ, for in our desire for control, we
lash out without regard for others. And yet, despite all of
our violence, you chose mercy. Teach us, we pray, the
way of your self-emptying love.
