Rev Dean Eland – Length 15:26

Palm Sunday – “Prepare Ye the Way of the Lord” – When Jesus rode a donkey into Jerusalem, a centre of wealth and power, he was demonstrating humility, sacrifice and self-giving – values quite contrary to those of the Roman occupiers and their religous accomplices, who maintained their positions, power and influence by exploting the poor and vulnerable. The good news of Jesus tells of a commnuity based not on the accumulation of wealth by exploitation, but on simplicity and generosity, of loving and being loved in return.
Philippians 2: 5-11; Matthew 21: 1-11
