Last Week's Message  (April 13)

A Summary from Pastor Nick

I always enjoy a good celebration, a party, or just a great gathering of friends and family.  I enjoy being around people and hearing their stories and about the things that make them happy.  I have enjoyed being your pastor these past two-plus months and each of you have made our family feel very welcome.  What a great celebration it has been and will continue to be as we go forward doing ministry together.  I am grateful that you have not waved palm branches as I come into church, because I don't want to think what happens next...

I can just imagine the celebration on the day Jesus came into Jerusalem on a donkey as people welcomed him in like a king.  Waving palm branches and laying their cloaks on the ground showed a sign of respect, a welcoming sign of a leader or king.  They yelled, "Hosanna, Blessed is He Who Comes in the name of the Lord."   Can you imagine if a parade or celebration was given to you as you came into South Lake Tahoe?  Can you imagine the energy of the crowd and how that would make you feel?  What an exciting feeling that must be, it would be for most people, but Jesus knew that the celebration would end in a few days and the cheers would turn to jeers.  He knew the palms being waved would turn into fists waving and with shouts to "crucify him!"  There is a celebration happening of joy and expectation that will soon change to sadness and heartache.
The great news today is we know that the sadness and heartache will not stay; it will be replaced with everlasting life!  This Sunday we wave palm branches and we celebrate, but next week we remember the bitterness of pain and death, and then...  and then... and then...
If you want to read ahead, Matthew 21: 1-11 will be our passage on Sunday.

Pastor Nick along with his wife Patty and daughter Diana
