It was epitomised by an act of sacrifice that broke the darkness of our captivity, his crucifixion for our sins." The force of Crucifixion “South Sudan has grievously suffered the force of the crucifixion through war, as South Sudanese have turned against each other, discarding the truth, while bringing people to the point of self-doubt. The night has been at its darkest,” the religious leaders say in their Easter pastoral message. Embrace the...
