#Repost@newdaynyc with @get_repost ・・・ This Sunday—Sleeping through the Apocalypse Lisa Asedillo Pratt, preaching . . In Mark 14, Jesus asks the disciples to stay awake with him in Gethsemane because he knows he is about to be killed and wants support. . . He has a very simple request: "stay here, and keep awake with me." . . Try as they may, the disciples can't deliver on Jesus' request. Three times he asks them to stay awake, and three times he finds them asleep. These friends of Jesus, who'd been with him through everything, could not show up when he needed them most. They knew what he was asking them to do, but it was too hard or too painful to stay awake. . . In what ways are we sleeping? In what ways are we awake but refusing to get out of bed? In what ways are people not staying awake for us? . . What will it take to truly wake up? . . Join us. All of you — including your tiredness and your awakeness — is welcome. . .
