We need to be aware in our families, workplaces, church and communities when have power in relation to other people
Our power can come from having position, knowledge, skills, relationships, longegevity or position.

We need to gravitate toward a use of power which is NOT against others and dominating but which is FOR others and nurturing

We need to expose the myth of redemptive violence as an example of how evil is not overcome evil.
We need to follow Jesus in non violent confrontation of the powers of domination.

Jesus refuses to have anything to do with oppressive power - anything which is over against another person, shown in accusations - he remains silent

We need to be aware
* when we are in power from above (like Pilate),
* when we are in power from below (like the crowd)
* when we are victims of an oppressive system and are dehumanised in our dealings with others (like the soldiers)

Roz Lau Reads Mark 15:1-20 and Nic Boyns preaches.
