Happy Easter from the Jeubs! Resurrections from darkness are the best, as Easter reminds us every year at this time.
This is one of several posts concerning "public smearing," and I am leading a Patreon Campaign to fully address this most important issue. You may read my public posts here, and consider becoming a patron to this good work:
This photo was taken last night for a dual Keilah/Elijah birthday celebration, turning 18 and 8 respectively. We now have more than half of our children as adults. Grandkids and son/daughter-in-laws are growing our numbers. Evenings like this one are more frequent than not.
Resurrection is going to be a theme in my book Facing Hate: Dealing with social smearing from the people we love. In a real way, Jesus Christ was “socially smeared” by the religious leaders of his day. He loved them, and they killed him. False testimony set Him up to be nailed to a tree, publicly humiliated with no defense, left to die with criminals on a hill. They didn’t know what they were doing, and Jesus admitted such.
I meditate on the Christ story and I identify. Do you? Going through a rigged trial and public humiliation is an experience no one should suffer. But it is a most common tactic of the Enemy.
I hope you consider supporting this good project. If you can’t, share this meditation with others. It will help immensely. Happy Easter!
