The Palm Sunday story is a reminder to stand tall in the face of adversity, to cry out against injustice, and to shout “Hosanna!” for Christ is come, God’s reign begun, and the Spirit is among us transforming the world. Unlike the disciples, we really do know how this story ends: Jesus died to take away the sins of the world and rose again defeating death so that we might have new and eternal life, now and later with God. This is cause for great hope and even greater joy. Even the rocks know this! Hosanna! Blessed is the One who comes in the name of the Lord! Amen.
- Luke 19:28 - 40
