Thoughts Arising and Having Arisen on Spy Wednesday in Holy Week

Today is Anthony, our son's birthday. April Fool's Day. Foolish, more and more seem to think, to assume the risk of marriage and parenthood in this, or any, day and age when life can seem precarious. Yet I'm very glad we did—for the joy of it.

I am also glad God was "foolish" (1 Cor 1.18-25) enough to do what we remember and celebrate each Holy Week. There was risk, inconvenience, sacrifice and suffering in it, too.

Some ponderings on the subject from Wednesdays past:
