This Week's Sermon

March 25, 2018

B18.2: Palm/Passion Sunday, Year B

Will Willimon

The Rev. Dr. William H. Willimon, Bishop in the United Methodist Church, Professor of the Practice of Christian Ministry, and one of America’s best preachers preaches a sermon called, “On Donkey Detail,” from Mark 11:1-11. “Though Mark does not explicitly say which two disciples went and got the animal, at least one scholar suspects that it may have been James and John. Just a few hours before, these were the two disciples who had said to Jesus, ‘Grant us to sit, one at your right hand and one at your left, in your glory,’ and now here they are on donkey detail. Some glory!” And yet, this is what must be done before Jesus can make his entry.
