“For Jesus’ followers, Friday was the crucifixion, Saturday was the time of tears and uncertainty, Sunday was the resurrection.  Faith confesses that the resurrection already happened.  And yet it seems faith also leaves us in a perpetual Saturday – when the suffering (of people and thus of God) of the crucifixion stays just as near to us as the promise of resurrection.  Sunday, we believe, is coming.  But meanwhile, we are not left trying to live faithfully in this Saturday of Tears?”  Kent Annan in After Shock
