Dear CrossPointe,I love writing these e-mails, because they help me think and distill the points of a sermon.

This week we will look at Mark 11:1-11 where Jesus rides a donkey into Jerusalem amidst shouts of "Hosanna!"On the surface, this may seem like merely a good text for Palm Sunday and not much else.

Jesus and Children

CrossPointe,In Mark 10:13-16, Jesus speaks of discipleship in parenting and caring for children. He says, “Let the children come to me; do not hinder them, for to such belongs the Kingdom of God” (v14). What does Jesus mean by this? How are those who possess God’s Kingdom like children?Is it because children are innocent? I think we know better than to be...
