We enjoy watching the curling events at the Olympics. So much strategy, intrigue, and finesse. We were really looking forward to seeing the men's gold medal match: USA vs. Sweden. Instead of catching the live stream in the middle of the night, we chose to watch the replay the next morning.
As we settled in for the match, the announcer states, "Stay tuned for the great USA win over Sweden in the gold medal match." I looked at him; he looked at me. Did she really need to say that? In a flash, the wind was sucked out of our sails.
Sometimes, though, we want to fast-forward to the end in order to learn the outcome of an event. After Jesus spent 40 days in the desert, and suffered his intense Passion and death, it is comforting to know how the story ends.
SPOILER ALERT: Jesus rises from the dead! Alleluia!!
