Easter Sunday 2020 – A Better Story

Easter 2020 A Better StoryEaster Sunday 2020 – A Better Story

What if ‘some’ of the Easter weekend stories we have been told….are not the whole story?  What if there were parts left out intentionally, or unintentionally?  Would you want to hear other story-teller’s versions?  Year after year the same ‘version’ of the story has been spoon fed to churches everywhere, whether they are true or not, we have believed them as true and never questioned them.  Today, I would like to share a ‘better’ version of the story of Easter.  Today we will look at ‘which crowds cried hosanna, and which crowds yelled ‘crucify him’.  We will explore the often expressed idea that ‘God turned His back on His son, and we will discover a more ‘hope-filled’ perspective on both.  Enjoy.

Palm Sunday- What Did You Really Expect?

Palm Sunday 2020Palm Sunday- What Did You Really Expect?

 

We want this Covid-19 virus crisis to end. We didn’t expect this a few months ago. Our expectations are likely the cause of most of our personal frustration. Jesus was worn into a Roman oppressed society and had Roman guards watching everywhere. Not only were the Jews oppressed by the Romans, they had religious oppression as well. The Jews had an ‘expectation’ as well! They were ‘expecting’ a saviour….. one who would save them from the Romans. Palm Sunday is about ‘expectations’ in one sense, it is a reminder that we all have them, live by them and are easily disappointing by them. Perhaps today, we can pause and re-evaluate ‘OUR’ expectations, and consider releasing some of them and replacing them with HOPE.

  • Remember Your Journey
  • Remember Those Who Have Gone Before Us
  • Remember There Is Hope
