Sunday to Monday | Palm Sunday

“A contemporary temptation in popular theology—and the rage in Christian publishing—is to put Jesus into a coat and tie to teach a leadership seminar.  The Sermon on the Mount may be replaced by the Sermon from the Top Floor Corner Office.  Jesus’ disciples become his management team. The Bible becomes the strategic plan. Jesus the Savior remains, to be sure.  But now, meet Jesus the mentor.

It’s very easy to reclothe Jesus in contemporary images to meet current needs rather than to let Jesus be Jesus … The temptation is to impose our own agenda on the biblical text instead of being challenged by it.”

~ John Throop, “Jesus and his management team, Christianity today, October 6, 1997, Ctlibrary.com

Yesterday was Palm Sunday. The sermon, “Be Content to Be a Fool (Be Content With What You Have)”
was given by Pastor Dave, with help from Angie Jumper, visiting from Booneville, MS. Text for the day was from Mark 11:1-10 and Mark 15:1-39. It was also Consecration Sunday and we celebrated with a wonderful luncheon after the late service.
