Forsaken: Strange Kingdom - Episode 2
Everyone has moments of wondering, where is God in the middle of great darkness? When terror strikes, disasters hit and the innocent suffer, we struggle to see the goodness of our Creator.
It’s a great comfort to me to realise that even Jesus faced such struggles. He cries out “My God, my God, why have you forsaken me?” (Matthew 27:46)
In this reflection I want to look at how we can be strengthened in our lives at work by the forsakenness of the cross - at the moment of godforsakenness experienced by Jesus in his last moments of agony.
