In this painting by William Congdon, “Crucifixion 2,” we encounter the energy of Christ. Not merely a person, in this painting Christ becomes pure energy of creative, transforming love. Christ is a burst of divine energy. It’s one thing to know a lot about Jesus; it’s another to be engaged by the real energy of the divine that is forever being released into the world through him. The spiritual life is about tapping into the deepest energies of life. For Christians, the opportunity of Holy Week is to move into the currents under the surface of ancient events; we swim in the rivers that flow under the ocean.
