Monday Week Five

I feel disturbed the discussion of this particular reading for today.  In reading the portion of the reading that speaks to the gentle, respectful care of Joseph, I am not sure how that connects to the issues arrived at by the writer.  I feel sad that this Lenten book of readings has become so negative and does not do more to find the positive and uplifting suggestions we need to face many of these same challenges.  I honestly do not know what to say.
