Sermons on “Redemption”
Our Palm Sunday service is full of tension: Within 10 minutes, we shout both “Hosanna!” and “Crucify!” While it feels strange, that tension is the tension of real life: Rarely is anything in our life ever purely good or purely evil. Fr. Thomas looks at how Jesus resolves this tension.
Maybe this is an impious impulse, but whenever a Christmas story starts with “In the beginning was the Word,” most of us wonder where the shepherds and donkeys are? Fr. Thomas exposes the power of the opening of St. John’s Gospel in our lives.
