Our church opens its doors...






 

 

Palm Sunday will include uplifting music, an abundant shared potluck brunch between services, the Puppeteers, and a sermon that I have designed to address the three essential principles in ancient Greek rhetoric:  That is:

1) To delight 2) To inform 3) To move --- or to use more contemporary language-- to entertain, to educate, and to inspire.

 

I'll be preaching about rocks that talk--no kidding.  Here's a hint of what I mean.  One time a big rock told me where I could not bury a fence post on my property.  One time a mountainside told me that George Washington, Abraham Lincoln, Teddy Roosevelt, and Thomas Jefferson were among our country's greatest presidents.  And back in 1973 I got off a greyhound bus and walked northward to the south rim of the Grand Canyon.  Looking upon that 1 mile deep and one hundred mile long water-dug trench of rock it declared to me the majesty of our Creator's handiwork.

 

Jesus knew that rocks speak.  He made reference to it during his triumphal entry.  That's when he told the religious leaders, in no uncertain terms,  what the rocks would shout if we were silent. I tell you Sunday what the rocks would shout.

 

Let's re-live the dramatic moment when Jesus comes riding on a colt down the Mount of Olives into the valley and up to the great temple in Jerusalem.  The King of kings is coming!  Join us for worship.                                     Pastor Larry
