Sermon: The Gift of Disappearing

promo-tall“The Gift of Disappearing”

(April 9, 2017 – Palm Sunday) Caught between the poles of fear and shame, we sometimes let one or the other construct an image of ourselves, when in fact, each pulls us away from who God calls us to be. Jesus, having journeyed in the Dark Wood, knows the gift of sliding past those expectations, turning sideways to them, and disappearing, to emerge as who he has always been: God’s beloved Child. (Philippians 2:5-11; Mark 11:1-11)
