The Triumphal Entry
In this week’s sermon, Peter tackles Palm Sunday a week early. He looks at what is going on in this story and when Jesus cleanses the temple. He is condemning a religious life that obsesses over ritual but never gets down to the business of extending God’s love and healing into the world.
Questions for application
- What are the things I hope to get when I go to church?
- Does my religion go beyond a set of practices (prayer, attending church, reading scripture, etc.) and move me to love and serve others?
- Who are the people around me most in need of loving and serving? How can I use the tools and insights I’ve acquired at church in order to love and serve them better?
