Holy Week 2007 - Poem by James Tipp

Holy week in an unholy world the title seems redundant
Lost in the annuls of time and space, a theological nicety.
What is holy about crucifixion, killing a man painfully?
Yet the Church still in her wisdom celebrates or remembers
This one moment in history, when betrayal brought hope
Hope brought courage and courage was reinforced by nothing
The empty tomb with nothing in it, well apart from an angel or two.
Gods covenant made new by his actions his keeping both sides
Jesus the answer to mans inability to be sinless, and stable
The relationship with God made new by God through God in man.
Holy week because he turns betrayal and death into salvation
He turns the emptiness of the tomb into new life, new hope.
He turns disaster into victory and it is a Holy experience new life.
