Palm Sunday – Lent 6

Luke 19:29-40 – I was drawn to the religious leaders’ request to Jesus to “make it stop!” Their protest was a strong reaction from their own fear of future loss. This is my attempt to humanize the Pharisees and to increase our grace for them, for really they are us. And Jesus goes relentlessly toward the cross for us all.

Blessed Hunger, Holy Feast: Lent 3

Isaiah 55:1-9 – What hungers do we have? Relational hungers? Spiritual thirst? Gnawing, physical hunger? God initiates a relationship with people who have hungers of all kinds. God offers satisfaction and nourishment to all who are bruised and beaten, struggling and searching. It costs nothing! And it will take all you have to accept God’s invitation!
