On Palm Sunday, Tony Tremblett spoke on John 12:1-19 about the anointing and the triumphal entry into Jerusalem. How is it possible that one day the crowds around Jesus were shouting “hosanna!”, and less than a week later, were shouting “Crucify him”? What would have become of Jesus if he had searched for approval by the polls? Do we know our value to God, and do we understand love with our hearts — or just our minds? Let us pray for the courage to resist the pressures of fickle crowds and stand with Jesus. [KH]
Communion was celebrated, and the MSC Student Year-End BBQ followed the service. All student residents of the MSC were invited to enjoy the meal as were all guests to the fellowship. Regular attenders were invited to bring a dessert or salad to share – farmer sausage and veggie burgers were supplied.
