Remember Me When You Come Into Your Kingdom
We have been speaking of the life issues as they intersect politics, and also have lately observed Holy Week. Good Friday involved capital punishment, both of someone innocent, and others who were guilty of the crime they were accused of. Coincidentally, on Thursday night the state of Arkansas executed a man who was convicted of murder. He has maintained his innocence. Instead of a last meal, he asked to receive Communion: https://www.americamagazine.org/politics-society/2017/04/21/man-executed-last-night-arkansas-chose-communion-his-last-meal. I am reminded of Jesus' dialogue with the repentant criminal in Luke 23:42.
