Mourning God

Incredibly moving Maundy Thursday Tenebrae service this evening.

Felt physically bereft at the lack of blessing in the dismissal and when the Christ candle was carried out of the worship space .

Jesus is gone.

Now in my sleeplessness pondering the feast of the annuciation and Good Friday sharing the same day. God given human form, and God taken away. Delivered to Mary as hope in a womb, and a broken body in arms.
