Dear ,
THE GOOD FRIDAY RELAY

"If you have ever watched a relay race you know it is about one runner passing the baton to the next. Success is based on the accuracy and speed of the many handoffs. We are finishing our journey in Lent. We are approaching the Cross where Jesus died, the end of His earthly race. I want to suggest there are several handoffs of the Cross in His story."
