The poet Kahlil Ghibran, best known for his book The Prophet, was a devout Lebanese Christian. He wrote several books and poems about Jesus, and saw in him a kindred prophetic voice despised by most yet speaking truth from God.
Ghibran’s meditation ‘The Crucified’ is a very powerful re framing of the death of Jesus, not as weakness under siege, but as bold courageous love defeating death.
Read it silently or aloud at 2 pm
Good Friday or another time.
