Journey to Jerusalem: A Life on the Way

During Lent, we have been exploring the demands entailed in following Jesus.  On this Palm Sunday, we remember the celebration as Jesus made his entrance into Jerusalem.  And, we hear his lament over Jerusalem’s lack of recognition of their “visitation by God.”  Knowing where this story leads, we will wonder what this means for us too.  Are we as fickle as the crowd whose chants of “Hosanna” shift to “Crucify”?

Crown Him Lord of All
