Gathered by the Cross
As we begin our Lenten journey this year, we turn to the story of our Lord’s suffering, death, and resurrection. Every good story must have an arch villain, and Judas certainly qualifies. Judas, however, was not the only one who was drawn into these world-changing events. Some were central to what was happening. At least one was surprised by his involvement. Some were intimately involved with each other. Others had no knowledge of the others existence, yet all were gathered into the story by the cross.
