Palm Sunday

Laying Branches Low

When the people greeted Jesus with palm branches, what were they hoping for?

Why the cross? What does it mean?
Why my pain? What does it mean?


Last Sunday I preached at our church to kick off Holy Week, exploring the strange events of Palm Sunday and the hopes and aches we all can’t seem to shake. From the children of Israel who wondered if God had brought them through the waters to freedom only to abandon them in the wilderness, to my own heart in Silicon Valley where I find myself bitter about the Tesla next door, this is a message about looking again at Jesus and finding our story in His story.
