I got a new computer, whoooo! There are still a few glitches here and there, but so far, so good. (I went for a desktop instead of a laptop this time.) Anyway, we are at the end of Lent and at the start of Holy Week!
Holy Week begins with Palm Sunday and the reading of the Passion of Our Lord. I love Holy Week. It is the busiest time of the year for clergy (yes, more so than Christmas) but I find it invigorating. The liturgies in Holy Week are beautiful, meaningful, and just a little bit strange to those who have never participated in them. I hope that you too have a prayerful and Spirit filled week.

Below is the link to my Palm Sunday sermon. The passion of Jesus (the recounting of His last days) is very meaningful and holds a mirror up to us. It shows us how easily we can get caught up with the crowd, with knee jerk angry reactions, with violence inciting rhetoric. This is not the past, my friends, it is NOW, it is 21st Century America….
Thanks for stopping by!
