At the foot of the cross
where grace and suffering meet
You have shown me your love
through the judgment You received
and You’ve won my heart…
“Ashes to Beauty” by Kathryn Scott
Easter is upon us as a week from today, Christians will celebrate the resurrection of Christ by going to church, spending time with families and…eating chocolate bunnies.
There’s definitely a dichotomy there. Here’s one, too – Beneath the Tangles will celebrate this week by discussion relationships of love in anime.
But before you think of throwing PAAS-dyed Easter eggs at me, consider the topic of these posts. We’ll be talking about the idea of “loving one for who he or she is.” While Christianity is often called a judgmental religion (probably because of its adherents more than any other reason), Jesus came and showed us that He loves us for who we are. No matter what we’ve done or how we’ve been broken, He offers a warm love that says, “I know who you really are and I still love you.”
Some of the great relationships in anime, romantic and friendly, demonstrate a similar love. So as we approach Easter, our blog will present one such anime or manga relationship each day. I hope you’ll join us for this Passion Week full of love posts!
Note: Last year, we did a series of Nicholas D. Wolfwood posts for the week.
