Dear <<First Name>>,
Throughout Lent, we have been talking about Stepping Away -- taking time apart to be with God and care for our souls. On Palm Sunday this week, Jesus invites us to step back in.
Jesus himself steps forward on Palm Sunday into Jerusalem. While the parade of hosannas seems like a moment of glory, it is the moment when he puts himself forward to die, to be murdered by the authorities for claiming the God of Peace. He risks everything by confronting those who would end his ministry, and challenging them boldly with a public procession that, by week's end, proceeds to the cross.
Palm Sunday challenges us to step in, step up for God. How is God asking you to put your faith first, to be vulnerable to the Spirit, to take risks in the name of holiness, to dare to be troubled by and trouble for your relationship with Jesus?
Join us on Sunday, and step in to Holy Week.
