Palm Sunday: The Other Side Of The Desert

This week, Sean Palmer walks us through our last week of Lent and in our series of “In the Desert.” He guides us through some passages that remind us that God leads us into the desert and into the struggles. And he reminds us that sometimes the reason we are wrestling with God, struggling with circumstances, is because God led us there to bless us.

Text

Genesis 32:22-28

Matthew 4:1

“According to ancient theory of art, the practice of sculpting has less to do with fashioning a figure of one’s choosing than with being able to see in the stone the figure waiting to be liberated. The sculptor imposes nothing but only frees what is held captive in stone.”

— Martin Laird, A Sunlit Absence
