Palm Sunday 33 AD… a day filled with conflicting emotions. Celebration marked the day as people lined the road going from the Mount of Olives to Jerusalem, the “City of Peace.” They waved palm branches, threw their cloaks on the road, hooped and hollered praises and blessings. But for Jesus, the emotion was mourning. He wept. He knew the City of Peace would soon reject and crucify the Prince of Peace. Anthony challenged us to respond to the juxtaposition of emotions on Palm Sunday by making it personal: How does Jesus’ triumphal entry into our lives make us new, different, and special? As we experience a rollercoaster of emotions, what grounds us in Christ and unites us as a body?
On Sunday we looked into Isaiah’s story, along with excerpts from the undone worship of both Jonah and Paul. Undone worship means coming to the end of ourselves so that God can restore us, heal us and send us into ministry!
