Bob Robinson will be leading us this Sunday morning at 9:45. He will be encouraging us to think about the way that Jesus’ entry into Jerusalem and then his death undermine our ways of thinking about power. The consistent message is that our usual conceptions of personal, arbitrary power do not hold in the realm of God. Both the Lucan texts for Palm Sunday and for Passion Sunday portray Jesus as embodying an understanding of power based on giving oneself away rather than collecting power to oneself. He will use those Luke texts, 19:28-40 and 22:14-23:56 as the basis for our discussion.
