Today Roshi offers his Saturday morning talk as a special reading to conclude our Spring Ango 2010. He references the first letter of St. Peter – Christ’s descent into hell.
Thank you for sharing your thoughts with us and for the many words of appreciation you’ve offered Roshi.
Today Roshi refers to the Gospel of John – The Passion and Death of Christ
Today’s reading is from the Book of Exodus – The Passover of the Lord
Today Roshi refers to the Gospel of John – The story of Judas Iscariot
Roshi’s comment: Of course the story is not about Judas. The story is about us and the deals we make.
Today Roshi refers to John 13 – Peter asks, Lord, where are you going?
Roshi’s comments: Who could have imagined that this death was the Wisdom of God?… Lord, where are you taking us? Where for us is the Wisdom of God?
