Washing Your Hands Kills Germs, Not Sin

This Sunday we’ll talk about complicity, consequences, and what could have happened if Pilate had done the right thing instead of the easy thing and used this power and authority for good and let Jesus go. Where in our lives do we have the opportunity to stand up for the oppressed and downtrodden? Do we speak up when the innocent are condemned? Or do we, like Pilate, try to pass the buck and wash our hands of the sin of our inaction?
