Going down on a Saturday

Part of my reflections on Is 53:9-12 and Eph 4:7-14 during my lenten retreat

To spiral down on Black Saturday means to experience feebleness yet Jesus has gone ahead and He will lift me up

Down, down, down

Lack of appreciation

Lack of respect



Falsely accused



Misunderstood        carrying the burdens of others

Feared making mistakes            object of their scorn

No recognition        feel helpless        distrusted

No reward            irrelevant        rejected

Ignored                hindered/opposed        suffer to receive my beloved

Forgotten            bad guy        evil            rebuked/corrected

Marginalized        unpopular    scarred        isolated        no one caring    lonely

    David, I hope you are not feeling all of those things – you are speaking in generalities, right?

      Was on a four day lenten retreat and on the Saturday, our meditation was on Christ buried and so I reflected on Eph 4 and Is 53 and tried to enter into what it must have been like to be there.
