As we expect one ending we are invited into the beginning of following Christ.
We see ourselves in both crowds of the week of the passion.
We are invited beyond our expectations into what Jesus is doing.
In the cleansing of the temple Jesus gives us a righteous model of anger
We are invited into Gods good name for us as hope arises.
We are called together as God's Body to be healed
We are invited to hope and to be supported in the nature of God's presence.
Jonah reminds us that God takes us, sometimes, where we would rather not go.
