Start of the Madness

The NCAA tourney started today--for me, a good start as Purdue made it past Baylor. Congratulations to nearby Belmont on a truly heroic effort against Duke this evening.48 games in four days may be enough to drive my wife crazy.

A different and ultimately far more significant madness started over 2000 years ago just east of the Mediterranean Sea. After a meal and quiet time, Jesus and some of his followers were accosted by Judas and Roman soldiers, setting in place events which Christians believe to be the turning point of human history. From the sting of the kiss to the agonizing execution to the mysterious shift of the stone with the Roman seal and the walk by two followers from Jerusalem to their Emmaus home, truly amazing things happened in a very short time.
