"If then you have been raised with Christ, seek the things that are above, where Christ is, seated at the right hand of God. Set your minds on things that are above, not on things that are on earth. For you have died, and your life is hidden with Christ in God. When Christ who is your life appears, then you also will appear with him in glory." - Colossians 3:1-4

Matthew 20:29-34

A strange Palm Sunday indeed. Normally we would have gathered in the Silk Mill for baby dedications and loud hosannas. However, we will gather in our homes with shouts of praise, tinged with lament. Perhaps this is a more accurate way to celebrate Palm Sunday anyway. In our text we look at Jesus’ actions right before the donkey ride. Two men, blind and poor, cry out to him for healing. “Have mercy on us Son of David!” These words ring in my ears as I think about the healing and blindness our world is experiencing right now. Please join us this Palm Sunday as we worship the King, who is humble and riding on a donkey, yet he is also the Healer who stops the parade to give sight to the blind.
