  • Palm Sunday in Tavira, Portugal – ICOMB
    temple and crying out Hosanna Kids mimic their elders they had heard the adult crowds shouting these Hosannas earlier And Jesus true to his practice to welcome children and the child like quotes Psalm 8 2 in their defense So thinking of children is not out of order But In every account of the Gospels the cleansing of the temple is connected to the Triumphal entry though displaced by John into the beginning of his gospel We know very well that Jesus Triumphal entry was a political act in itself The people of his day were hoping he would save Israel and be their King and restore preserve the land and worship in the way they knew Jesus act of cleansing the temple was also political a sign that the Temple was no longer going to be the center of worship Archeologists say there was a vast vault underneath the Temple where all the necessary merchant stalls were located so people could exchange dirty foreign money into Temple ready currency and with that purchase the animals needed for offerings Jesus graphically showed this was no longer going to be needed Further the location of his death on a public execution ground also told the world that God was no longer going to use the exclusivity of Jewish religious rites and locations God was meeting humanity at the cross roads now unadorned defenseless and open armed Palm Sunday challenges us today We know that God has made himself totally available Yet the religious vault lies close beneath the surface Too quickly we fall into religious busyness and business we convince ourselves that God is pleased with our bustle and our willingness to make him an absorbing and even expensive hobby that he likes our worship in isolated venues and religious professionalism commitment to excellence These are occupations that substantially eat into the time we have which would locate us in the world where we could show people that God is not about religious rites and churchianity As I encounter our global faith family I see many people who simply move out in faith point others to Christ and begin new fellowships and even churches I don t see commitment to excellence as much as commitment to whatever it takes to share Christ A church building would be nice and eventually a necessity but it s not the functioning definition of church It s more often understood that church is the people of God out there at a very fundamental level These are some of the adult messages of Palm Sunday They are easy to miss if we just leave Palm Sunday to the children Palm Sunday Portugal Similar Posts Peace Lessons from the Global MB Family 7 Jun 2013 President of Columbia Bible College Bryan Born called me for some peace lessons stories coming US MB Study Conference Day 3 Final 26 Jan 2013 Saturday January 26 Closing Presentations Views from the world MCC the Mennonite World Conference ICOMB ICOMB Statement
