Sermon for Palm Sunday 2007

Sermons and audio

We begin the Palm Sunday liturgy with Jesus triumphal entry into Jerusalem, and then quickly move from that moment of victory and triumph into scenes of an angry mob, shouting, "Crucify Him!" It is a hard thing to put ourselves in the shoes of those who wanted Jesus put to death, and many of us respond by trying to avoid the cross and avoid the examination and amendment of life the cross calls us to. Palm Sunday compels us to face the difficulty of the cross head on and to recognize how quickly we turn against God and one another.
