Palm Sunday

182

Note:  TableThink is focusing on the key elements of Holy Week.  Our regularly scheduled features will return on Monday, April 22.  We invite you to join the TableThink community’s intentional daily focus on Christ.

This is an incredible week to focus and meditate on Christ who reveals the power of love which has no beginning or end.  It’s beyond what can be imagined when we live in and through the love of Christ.  *We invite you to experience and share these simple meditations for adults and kids this week. The full week’s listing will be updated on the article, Sunday Soul Work: Holy Week.  The Think On This daily devotion and 2-minute podcast will be featured and include the daily meditation for adults and kids.

Listen . . . 

Think on this . . .

Years ago, an older friend and I would laugh over how we perceived life so differently.  We would summarize a situation by saying, “Perspective is everything.”

The thing is . . . she saw all the things that could go wrong and I saw all  the things working well . . . so we decided to share how we perceived something, realizing our individual perspective was limited. 

John 12 is a revelation of  humanity and Jesus’ perception. John writes about the day traditionally named Palm Sunday.

The crowd sang, cheered, and waved palm branches, declaring the belief and excitement that Jesus was their long-awaited Messiah. 

But.

Their perception was the Messiah was solely for them and would overturn their government to free them from oppression.  Their perspective was limited.

While the people cheered, Jesus wept over the power of darkness and soul-deep oppression on humanity.  

Christ came to humanity, revealing the divine perspective of unending love and unstoppable passion.   

Isaiah (55:8-9) connects this moment, revealing God’s thoughts are beyond what we think.  

Meditate . . . Be still and know God . . . 

Take time to determine what Palm Sunday means in your life . . .  and to all of humanity . . . a celebration of the Holy Sacred Week. 

For Kids . . .

Start a conversation about God’s thoughts.

  • God thinks about you.
  • God thinks about you with love.
  • God is your friend.

We’ve prepared some simple thoughts and meditations for adults and kids this week at Sunday Soul Work:  Holy Week

Sunday Soul Work: Holy Week

A Conversation About Holy Week

In our conversation at the table, Joshua questioned me about some of my thoughts and experiences on Holy Week.

On Palm Sunday, April 14, TableThink will  provide some resources for you to use during Holy Week.  This will include some thoughts on John 20-10-11. John, referred to as the other disciple, and Peter went home after seeing the linen cloths lying in the tomb and the burial cloth folded.

The thing is . . . they went home . . . missing the most magnificent moment in humanity’s history.

But. 

Mary went back to the tomb where Jesus had been buried and experienced more than can be imagined.

Think on this . . . 

By the way . . .
