Welcome to Season 3! It’s time to make a change. It’s time to lay down our pride and our weapons, whether they be words, guns, or the Bible, and settle in for hard conversations. It’s time to gather around the campfire, halfway between our camp and theirs, and bring an open heart and curious mind.

I am longing for a community who prioritizes love over hate and people over theology—maybe you are too?

On this day, over 2,000 years ago, the people in power - the rich, the elite, the educated, the religious leaders - challenged Jesus, asking him to prove that he was who he claimed he was. Questioning everything he was and stood for, they tried to disprove that Jesus’ power truly came from the greatest One of all.

On this day, over 2,000 years ago, Jesus got angry. Showing us the very human part of himself, Jesus allowed his holy rage to spill out as he overturned tables and berated those who were using the temple in Jerusalem as nothing more than a place to do business rather than worship God.

On this day, over 2,000 years ago, Jesus - Emmanuel, God with Us - rode into Jerusalem on a borrowed donkey. His arrival was met with great jubilation and celebration, but only he knew it was the beginning of the end of the life of God wrapped in skin.

Thank you for allowing me to be a part of this most important week of the year in the life of yourself and your family. Happy Holy Week, friends. Let’s keep our eyes on Jesus.
