Readings for Palm Sunday

Isaiah 50:4-9, Philippians 2:5-115: 1-11 and Matthew 27:11-54


Friday 7th April

Who do we want released to fight our cause? When we feel wronged by another person would we campaign for the  release of a freedom fighter, a great lawyer , a politician? Or would we want Jesus to be released to call us to love in the face of persecution, to love those who abused us and our religion? Which force do we want to release in our lives and into the world? “The governor again said to them, ‘Which of the two do you want me to release for you?’ And they said, ‘Barabbas.’ ”
