Offered 3/13/16 at Trinity United Methodist Church, Sarasota FL

Excruciating – from the Latin ex cruces, literally “from the cross”

2 Corinthians 5:21
For our sake he made him to be sin who knew no sin, so that in him we might become the righteousness of God.

Job 30:26
But when I looked for good, evil came; and when I waited for light, darkness came.

Poem: You Understand My Pain by Lisa Ann Moss Degrenia

I am wounded… so were you
They call me names… you heard a few
I cry at night… you cried there, too
You understand my pain

I’m unwelcome… you know the glare
I am lonely… you can compare
My choices trap… you took their snare
You understand my pain

I feel beaten… your back was scored
I have no voice… you were ignored
They pierced my heart… they pierced you more
You understand my pain

You understand my pain
You know my deepest need
When life is all but tame You clear a way for me
Forever I will claim the One who never leaves
You understand my pain
