Our worship series for Lent is The Last Week. Based on the book The Last Week by noted biblical scholars Marcus Borg and Dominic Crossan, the series will trace the events of the last week of Jesus’ earthly life. The authors note that the central message of Jesus’ ministry was the Kingdom of God, a kingdom of justice, peace, and economic justice, a kingdom where God’s will is indeed done on earth as it is in heaven. Jesus, both by what he said and what he did, offered a direct threat to the ruling authorities of first century Jerusalem, a threat which led to his arrest, trial, and crucifixion.
Our worship series will trace Jesus’ last week, and the larger meanings behind what Jesus said and did.
Sunday: The Triumphal Entry
