A Place Called Gethsemane

Gethsemane means "oil press" and it's in the garden of Gethsemane that the Anointed (the Christ) comes under immense pressure. It's in Gethsemane that we most clearly see the humanity of Jesus as he struggles with the will of the Father. And it's in Gethsemane that Jesus most pointedly renounces the myth of redemptive violence and takes his stand for a peace that will only come through co-suffering love.

Amen
