How fitting it is that as Good Friday draws near we are studying the Day of Atonement, the most holy day of the Jewish year when the high priest entered the Holy of Holies to sprinkle blood on and before the mercy seat to atone for his sins and the sins of the nation of Israel. This solemn feast day was a special sabbath and one spent in humble reflection as the Jewish people considered the ugliness of their sin committed in the past year and the costliness of having their transgressions covered by the blood of another life.
Today we remember the death of our Passover Lamb with a post rich in Scripture, symbolism, and song. We hope you'll join us at ufcwomen.blog and then hop over to YouTube or Facebook at 6 p.m. for UFC's Good Friday livestream.
As we begin our journey through Holy Week on this Palm Sunday Eve, Jaime Sherman invites us to step back in time to the First Century and allow our senses to come alive as Mary anoints Jesus with the oil of spikenard.
