  • We are so familiar with the entrance of Jesus into Jerusalem on Palm Sunday. It was a brief moment of triumph as people laid down their cloaks like a red carpet and waved palm branches with abandon. What a frenzy of welcome for this superhero. (Luke 19:35-38)

    Immediately after, Luke says Jesus wept over that city. “If this day you only knew what makes for peace, but it is hidden from your eyes.” Jesus left Jerusalem a week later, carrying a cross to Calvary hill where he was crucified as a criminal — and people wept.

  • After spending time in the hot afternoon sun picking vegetables from my friends’ garden, I wasn’t up to spending a lot of time in the kitchen. However, I had some nice vegetables I don’t have in my garden that would make a lovely meatless dinner.

    Now, I must admit, I am not very good about eating meals without some form of meat. I grew up with grandparents having a big farm and every year we had freshly butchered beef and pork that went directly into our freezer.
