Passion Sunday

Posted on Updated on

Readings: Isaiah 50: 4-7; Philippians 2:6-11; Matthew 26:14-27, 66

Originally delivered on April 8, 1990

How can we understand those that called for Jesus’s death?  How are we like them?  Like them, do we think that we are doing the right thing?  Or do we shrink at the thought of standing up for what we know is right? That is, what are our motivations for what we do? Indeed, part of the human condition perhaps, is that we are not always at our best.  But, we must pray to God to be accepting of our human limitations and that we may have more courage to stand up for a cause that makes the world better.
