When we have somebody to Love—or somebody to Love us—we can endure our hardness sadness, and we can put down our deepest regret, and we can celebrate with the utmost Joy, because we will see that the Home of God is among us.
We hold hands with one another to echo the faithful Love of God.
Instead of being for others, we can decide to be with others.
Every act of Kindness, Compassion, and Hope is an act of Peace.
We never want the Holy moments to end. It’s why we gather to remember. It’s why we gather around the table to experience, again, the Love of Christ—where rejection becomes Embrace, where brokenness becomes Strength, where defeat becomes Victory, and where death becomes Life.
Palm Sunday is meant to change our mind to embrace the strength of Humility and a very different kind of Victory.
God is the same Savior, Redeemer, Partner, Friend, Reformer, in our lives today as God was in Christ.
We must confront our past to understand our present, and we must strive for a better future—continuing God’s Good Work around us.
We should always celebrate when someone comes into the party. We should never overlook the importance of unlikely friendships. And, we should never underestimate the power of belonging.
Our internal clock seems to move faster than the second hand on our watch. We want a quicker route to our destination, but a quicker route only gets us off course.
