Why Call Friday Good? Spiritual Reflections for Lent and Holy Week

By Chuck Queen

Although we have already started the 2012 Lenten journey, it’s not too late to add this devotional resource to your weekly personal meditation times or to use it in Sunday school lessons or sermons or other oral communications. Perhaps it would be best utilized as a stand-alone study piece for Holy Week.

Short and to the point, the reflections are based on the seven last words of Jesus from the cross (including an Easter message). Combining scriptural study and illustrations from modern culture, they invite readers to contemplate the spiritual, theological and biblical significance of the death and resurrection of Jesus – and to apply the Lenten principles in a personal way. Chapter titles include:

Feeling Forsaken

Preemptive Forgiveness

The Gospel in a Snapshot

A New Family

Thirsting for Life

The Glory of Love

Why Call Friday Good?

Choosing Life

    <P>Well, I still needed a digital watch for my exercises. I needed one that has
    large digits for easy viewing and backlighting, since I do most of my exercises
    during late evenings when the casio ef 535
    skylight is dim and with the sun is setting over
    the horizon. Plus the fact that digital watches are much more useful than
    analogue watches for accurate timing. So I looked around for suitable watch
    replacement. Looking at the Casio ranges, a lot of sport watches were either
    tough solar types or the 10 year battery types. There were also a few normal
    types but I didn’t like their design or their pricing.</P>
    <P>So I started looking at other brands like Timex. Well, I like the Timex
    analogue watches not only for its functions but also their stylish designs.
    However I didn’t like the digital ones as their design looked rather ugly. Not
    quite my taste. One thing about Casio digcasio ef 535
    ital watches, they really know how to
    make stylish watches. So next, I looked at a few other brands and finally
    settled on a simple Nike watch instead.</P>
    <P>At first my wife didn’t like the Nike watch and though it was rather ugly,
    but after looking at it for awhile, she thought it looked quite alright and
    decided to take over the black one. So it wasn’t a loss despite having to buy
    another Nike Watch. Now we are pair when both of us are wearing the Nike watches
    when we go to the outdoors!As for my Casio PHYS Tough Solar watch? It still
    functions; I still left it hanging bycasio watches
    the window to absorb enough photons to
    keep it going. I could use it during the day. For evening exercises and walks,
    forget it. I shall never again ever purchase any solar powered watches or long
    lasting battery type watches. Watches that use ordinary battery would definitely
    be my preferred choice.</P></BODY></HTML>
