Notices for Week of 28 March, 2021

Notices: 28 March 2021, Palm Sunday
Dear friends,

This Sunday is Palm or Passion Sunday, the beginning of Holy Week, the most sacred time in the Christian year, the time when we begin reflecting on the transformative suffering of Jesus.

All of our lives, are filled with pain and suffering. Suffering is not negotiable. And the suffering will be transformative in our lives: it will either make us bitter and miserable, or it will make us compassionate and more alive. 

Like Jesus, we need to learn how to hold on to the pain in our lives, to be present to it, to surrender to it until we’ve learned its lessons. Let us enter into Holy Week with Jesus as our guide, and trust in the New Life that will emerge out of our suffering.
