St Matthew-in-the-City’s Easter Billboard

St Matthew-in-the-City put up their Easter billboard today. It depicts Jesus on the cross with the question “Is resigning an option?”

Pope Benedict’s decision to resign caused an international stir. While we, from our outsider’s perspective, think his decision was a wise and even courageous one considering the history and tradition of his context, it got us thinking about things from which we can’t resign.

On Good Friday we remember Jesus’ crucifixion. It was not a role that he could resign from. Jesus' faithfulness to loving and including society's rejects got him killed. Such faithfulness is not something one resigns from, for it's not a job.

Vicar, Glynn Cardy says, “The cross reminds us of the cost of confronting the political power holders regarding how they exclude the marginal and vulnerable.”

Jesus was faithful to a vision. Even when it cost him his life.
