"Here’s the good news of this story: The Gospel is bigger than you. It’s bigger than your doubt and bigger than your fear. It’s bigger than your feelings of inadequacy, and bigger than your feelings of uncertainty." Yes! and thank you!

We always read the Passion in place of a sermon on Palm Sunday. I told Todd a few weeks ago that I don't like reading it in church, specifically because as a group, we read aloud "Crucify him! Crucify him!" and it makes me so sad. I like to think that I wouldn't have been one of the people saying that 2000 years ago, but chances are good that I would have been. Either way, Todd reminded me that that's the way things were supposed to go, that Jesus had to die in order to be resurrected. But oh man, am I thankful that Easter comes on the heels of Good Friday.

I don't specifically have a story of 'my' turn, but the lady who preached the sermon this last week at our church has something she calls 'the ministry of showing up,' which I think relates. To super-loosely paraphrase her: For those of us who are like, "who, me? me, heal people? me, be your hands and feet? wouldn't you prefer someone, um, more organized, with better credentials, someone all around...better?," she says: simply show up to help, and you have already gotten the hardest part out of the way

Thanks for sharing that, Em! I'm trying to get in the habit of praying the Jesus Prayer when knitting :]
