Jesus Cries Together in the Cave of Tears

"Jesus began to weep." John 11:35

Kano Yoshitaka
Kenzaburo Oe introduced the words of Simone Veil in his lecture.
"What is the most important attitude for humans? It is to ask other people or neighbors ‘What’s your trouble?'" Asking this way is human, and that's where human-like behavior begins.
To those who have been worried and anxious in the series of events caused by the new coronavirus, and those who have been worried about hate and elimination that have spread beyond the virus, with Simone Veil's word I greet you.
You might be suffering. Under the same events that we are facing now, each of us must have suffered. How are you suffering? What did you suffer? What is hurting you? That would be painful. I just pray that Jesus Christ, who wept in Lazarus's grave, touched his disciples' unclean feet, and never left the cross despite people saying "Get down from the cross, and I will believe in you," may touch your suffering. May the Lord be with us in our sufferings. And may your suffering reach God, and God's mercy is returned to us.
Together, we are connected to the NCC, and even in the realities of Japan such as this cave (grave), we receive a call to the life of the Lord Jesus and have time to stand up. Let's believe it.
I pray from the heart, Immanuel and Amen.

Hitoshi OKADA, General Secretary of Tomisaka Christian Center ...though he was in the form of God, ...but emptied himself, ...being born in human likeness. (Philippians 2:6-7) In Tomisaka, every year in December, we take German students of theology who participate in the Interreligious Dialogue Program organized by the NCC Institute of Religion to Yasukuni Shrine. Yasukuni is a shrine that honors people who died in the war for the Emperor and Class A war criminals as spirits (gods), and you can say that the shrine’s theology is a one that worships humans as gods or humans become gods. But God ...
