Cross and Crown
Jesus replies to Pilate’s interrogation by saying the reason he was born, the reason he came into the world, was “to testify to the truth. Everyone who belongs to the truth listens to my voice.” The concept of truth has come under attack in recent years as lies both big and small have been sown like seeds into so many fields, from politics to religion, from health care to business, from education to the environment, and have grown like weeds to threaten the harvest of justice. As followers of Christ, the Truth that sets us free, may we have the courage to stand before the powers of this world who promote the lies and hold them–and each other–accountable to the truth. We do this by being faithful witnesses to the truth that is Jesus.
