In this fascinating take on the arrival of Jesus into Jerusalem, Luke gives three pictures. First, Jesus arranges for his donkey. Second, he is welcomed broadly and loudly in a Palm-like cloak spreading party. Third, he passionately challenges the system of oppression. In a way, the pictures come together to argue that the most natural thing for us to do is welcome him (even the rocks would!), but then shows us the struggle with those who fight that natural thing for their own distorted illusions of self care. Let’s have novelist Vince Wetzel join us for a conversation about true self care vs illusions of self care.
