Steve DeNeff - Luke 19:28-42, 45-48. It’s Palm Sunday. We gather with the “crowd of disciples joyfully praising God in loud voices singing... Blessed is he who comes in the name of the Lord.” But can we stay with him as he weeps over the city, cleanses the temple, argues in our courts and contradicts some of our most cherished traditions? We can worship, but can we weep? We can sing with the public, but can we follow him into trouble, controversy, trial and death? Here, on the eve of Easter, the whole journey is compressed into a single week. How far into the week can we go?
