Pastor's Latest Sermon!
A Bloody Cheer!
Today is a strange and peculiar day. It reminds me of the famous Zapruder film clip of the unforgettable events of November 22, 1963 in Deele Plaza, Dallas, Texas just outside the Texas Book Depository. There was a parade. In that parade was the limousine with Jackie Kennedy wearing her famous pink dress and pink pill box hat. There was her husband, JFK, waving to the cheering crowds. As we watch them go down the street we shudder, because we know that a disaster is about to happen: the assassination of JFK. Today we remember another parade, very much like that one with which we began today’s service. Jesus had deliberately staged this parade. Accompanied by his entourage he deliberately stirs up messianic expectation and the crowd responds by shouting “Hosanna to the Son of David! Blessed is he who comes in the name of the Lord!” These words from Psalm 118 the crowds of Jerusalem had always used to greet the arrival of a triumphant king. They waved palm branches as an expression of nationalistic fervor, just like you see people today waving flags and shouting “God Bless America!” However, like the parade in Dallas, we know that disaster is about to happen. We want to yell to Jackie and JFK, “Stop!” We want to yell to Jesus, “Stop!”
