Sunday Reflection: Palm Sunday
Not all moments are equal.
That's something I say a lot, in a variety of contexts. I really do believe it, too-- that some moments are more significant than others, and we need to recognize them and embrace them when they come along. They are the times that are joyful and painful and most real-- the ones when we are most fully human, a creation of God.
We don't know much about the first 30 years of Jesus's life, but we know a lot about the last week. Like everything else in the Gospels, I think that has to mean something-- that the meaning of our lives is not evenly apportioned over the weeks and months and years, and we should not expect that.
