Scripture: Luke 19: 29-40
We shout with palms, “Blessed is the one who comes in the name of the Lord!” Yet how often do we fall silent?
Everybody loves a parade. But as we move further into this holy week together, the crowds cry again, not “save us” but “crucify him.”Audio 2016-03-20 John Mollet Journey of stones - of Palms and stones.mp3
Scripture: John 8:1-11
Exchanging judgment for grace and forgiveness
Our tendency is to rush to judgment, to get angry, to place blame, to curse, to call for the law when we need to rely on grace.
We should search our hearts, to find that place where a stone is lodged – whether it is a stone of self-doubt, hatred towards another or towards yourself, regret, a perceived personal failing, or imperfection of any type and remove it. Seek forgiveness and be transformed.Audio 2016-03-13 Cindy Ryan Jouney of stones - hurt and healing.mp3
Scripture: Matthew 16:13-23 & 1 Peter 2:4-10We are called to be living stones, a place for God to dwell. Though we are imperfect, we are precious to God. We can’t stay stationary. We need to remember to keep letting go of past sins, pain, and worries. It is the habit of living things to change and grow and transform.
