Indie: “Daddy, what’s so good about Good Friday? It wasn’t a particularly good day for Jesus. In fact, it was probably the worst day of his life.”
Me: “Yeah, probably was.”
Indie: “So we’re celebrating the death of an innocent man?
Indie: “Sure we are. Think about it, we’re celebrating the day that a guy we supposedly love and care about was tortured and killed. That’s cold.”
Me: “But, um, his death made all sorts of new things possible. It was a necessary plot twist in the story of salvation.”
Indie: “If you die on a Monday, and I inherit a whole bunch of money three days later, can I celebrate the day of your death for the rest of my life and call it Good Monday?”
