Dear sister and brother seekers, I commend to you these short meditations on the death of Jesus that were originally prepared for the Nauset Interfaith Good Friday service at St. Christopher’s Church in Chatham.

I believe reflecting upon them in our homes is most appropriate at a time when our country is deeply divided politically and also in the midst of a pandemic revealing us as at our worst and at our best. Which will prevail?  I am reminded of the words and wisdom of Abraham Lincoln in his second inaugural address (seven minutes long!) on the 4th of March 1865, just a month before his assassination. “With malice toward none, with charity for all, with firmness in the right as God gives us to see the right, let us strive on to finish the work we are in, to bind up the nation’s wounds to care for him who shall have borne the battle and for his widow and his orphan, to do all which may achieve and cherish a just and lasting peace among ourselves and with all nations.”

Please see the notes following the 7th meditation about how you can support the ministry of our Nauset Interfaith action teams with at risk youth, refugees and asylees living on Cape Cod.    A special thanks to the clergy and parish administrators for sharing these reflections online for members of their congregations.
