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
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
