Jesus’s entry into Jerusalem on the back of a donkey was actually a subversive act — much more a protest than a parade, a party, or an impromptu worship service. A call for revolution against the systems and institutions that stay in power through unjust practices and economic policies. Palm Sunday commemorates one of the most politically explosive acts of Jesus’ ministry, an act that calls for a revolutionary nonviolent disruption of systems of oppression. It might be appropriate to say it’s the most political Sunday of the year.
The longest night of the year, the winter solstice, is a way to acknowledge the darkness of loss while holding onto the light of hope for the future.

This is a perfect time for rest and reflection, introspection, and intention setting.
