Lent 2017: Sinners to Saints: Becoming Who God Sees: Thunder You Can't Hear - Sunday, April 9, 2017 - Rev. Jeff J. Meyers
Welcome to Palm Sunday at Roswell Presbyterian Church! Palm Sunday commemorates Jesus’ final journey into Jerusalem and marks the kick-off to Holy Week, the most important week of the Christian year.
Today, we will look at the story of Jesus calling his first disciples. As he calls his two favorite brothers, James and John, he gives them the nickname, “sons of thunder.” Their nickname gives us an insight into their personality that will only be fully revealed as they stand on the edge of the first Palm Sunday and Jesus’ triumphant entry into Jerusalem.
I look forward to entering Holy Week with you in worship today and discovering what we can learn from James and John so that we may become the people God sees.
Grace and peace,
Rev. Jeff J. Meyers
