As Lent draws to a close and Holy Week lies before us, Pastor Chris took an example from his recent trip to the Holy Land to look at Jesus' "becoming nothing" in great humility-- his kenosis. Kenosis is the Greek word that describes Jesus "emptying himself" to become like us-- to identify and find solidarity with us. Just how low did Jesus stoop in his kenosis? Even to the pit of despair and shame. Along the way we read some stunning words of advice about why God allows us to be shamed from the great theologian Helmut Thielicke.
