On Palm Sunday, Josh walks us through the familiar passage in Matthew of Jesus sending two disciples to retrieve a donkey and a colt for His procession into Jerusalem where the crowd shouts "Hosanna" as Jesus enters the city. We see that Jesus comes not as the king the people in the crowd expect or desire. In this time of social distancing, maybe you identify with the two disciples who are sent to do something with no clue how it will work out. Maybe the kingdoms -- the things in which you've placed your trust and security -- are weakened. Take heart. Jesus' incarnation is the perfect embodiment of love, and in this time, He is walking with you through this and whatever may be dying ushers in the birth of new possibilities. The worship journey this week: "The culture of the Kingdom of God -- the culture of Jesus." Matthew 21:1-11; Philippians 2:5-11; Psalm 139:7-12; Psalm 19:14.
