Good Thursday morning, y’all. As many of you know, this week is Holy Week, the week in the Christian year that commemorates Jesus of Nazareth’s arrival in Jerusalem, the culmination of his earthly ministry, his betrayal, crucifixion, and ultimate resurrection—the final event that revealed his identity as the Christ.
This past Sunday, I had the honor of returning to the church where I did most of my growing up to paint a mural live during the worship service. Here is the footage. If you like it, feel free to share it with those you love.
The song in the background is an original, all the music and lyrics are mine; I am not the greatest singer, but I wrote the song to tell the story of Holy Week, and I thought this video would be an appropriate way to share.
My prayer is that whatever you may or may not believe about Jesus of Nazareth and the event that Christians celebrate on Easter Sunday, you would know hope, joy, and peace in reflecting on the story of a man whose love was so deep that no pain could stop him from dying to save the world and whose power was great that death could not hold him.
Fiction or not, there’s no other story like it, and it altered history.
Happy Easter, y’all.
