Sermon - Passion Sunday 2009
Passion (Palm) Sunday is a challenging one to preach: tons of stuff going on. I decided to go with the theme of promise - disappointment - eschatological fulfilment. In other words, even when the Jesus-as-new-king and the discipleship narratives collapse in Mark's version of the Passion, they achieve ultimate fulfilment in a radically unexpected way at Easter. But we are called to accompany Jesus through the pain and torment of this time and not simply skip to Easter!
