"PEBBLES GO PUBLIC?"
Rev. Lon Lorton
March 25, 2018
Holy Week is here!
- An illogical conclusion to the life of Jesus
But, for this day there is a celebration like no other.
- Screaming and yelling and praising God
The Pharisees once again are offended by Jesus.
- "Rebuke your disciples!"
Jesus' followers have forever been told to settle down, even to shut up.
- "Don't be such fanatics!"
- "Curb your enthusiasm!"
Jesus' disciples have listened to the voices of the Pharisees for too long.
- "It's a little wink here, a little shrug there, a look the other way, and suddenly we find ourselves tolerating things and refusing to challenge behavior that is clearly wrong." (Dr. Frank Harrington)
The season of Lent is a good time to challenge our sins of omission.
