Easter 2020

Bending to serve

There are few more powerful stories than the story of Jesus, facing his death, washing the feet of his disciples. Far from a debasing practice, Jesus instead did it to refocus his followers on first-things-first, a place where we no longer worry about who is going to ascend to lead but instead, who will actually bend to serve.

Outside the gates

Much of the Easter story takes place physically outside of the city gates in Jerusalem. That offers a literal and figurative image worthy of our attention. What happens when we find ourselves outside the city gates; outside of what was once seen as safe and secure? If we allow transformation to happen there, we rediscover the solidarity blessed by God.
