No sermon this morning as it is Palm Sunday. We read one of the Passion Narratives instead of a sermon.

This year, it was the Passion according to Matthew. And for the first time, I asked the congregation, as the Body of Christ to read the words of Jesus whilst I read the rest.

Worth thinking about.

    It got me thinking. Reading out loud the words of Jesus puts the congregation in a very humble state. The Passion is otherwise experienced third hand whereas in this case the first person text brings out a lot more.

    I think it is a great idea and I am going to try it next year. If I remember!  Remind me in plenty time, Kelvin, please.
