  • 9.11 Remembered

    There are only a handful of days in which an entire nation collectively remembers what it was doing. Some have been high points in our history, like V-E and V-J Day at the end of World War II and Neil Armstrong’s first steps on the moon. Some have been moments we wish had never occurred, like Pearl Harbor, President Kennedy’s assassination, and the tragedies of Sept. 11, 2001.

    For those old enough to remember that last date, it seems hard to believe that 10 years have slipped by since that cool and clear morning.

  • Jesus saw the city and wept

    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.
