Matthew 21:1-10; 16:21-28

Today is Palm Sunday, the last Sunday in Lent – during Lent we have considered Gospel stories that remind us that God is both a ‘sent’ God and a ‘sending’ God. The Latin word for sending is missio – theologians talk about the ‘missio dei’, the sending, or mission, of God. During Lent we have reflected on what it means for us to be the sent people of God. This morning, Adrienne curates our service as we look at the story of the triumphal entry of Christ into Jerusalem in Matthew 21:1-10 and we will consider how Peter misunderstands Jesus’ mission in Matthew 16:21-28.
