Every Friday I dig into the archives and dust off an old post. If you haven’t read it, it’s new to you!
Christians are funny creatures. We embrace tradition and eschew tradition. We point to the old ways and blaze trails to new ways. We love liturgy and hate liturgy. We use terminology like “it’s not about religion, but about a relationship.”
Depending on the faith tradition you grew up in, maybe your church made a big deal out of Palm Sunday and Passion Week, and maybe not. It’s not that you didn’t appreciate the days leading up to Easter Sunday, it’s just that Easter Sunday got top billing.
And I think that’s me. I think that I’ve always focused so much on the Sunday celebration that I forget what was necessary for that celebration.
