Entering into Holy Week

Palm Sunday today. For some reason, my church doesn't give out palms to just regular attenders. You had to be a kid in the choir or an adult in the choir to get palms. In any case, singing "All Glory Laud and Honor" was a good way to start my morning. There is something about a king riding in on a donkey that gets me every time. It is just sort of confusing and exciting all at the same time.

This week is busy, filled with a ridiculous amount of meetings. And of course worship on Thursday, Friday, Saturday and Sunday. Tomorrow is my mom's birthday, and if all goes as planned, Tuesday brings the birth of my neice. There is some major fun at the end of the week with our pretzel day activities at the church. Thankfully, after this week ends, I've got Monday next week off.

I of course will start my ridiculous ritual of listening to Jesus Christ Superstar at some point. I'm still looking to see if I can find a Seder dinner to attend on Thursday. There is something incredibly moving about this whole Holy week experience. This one should be a good one for sure.

I started Shane Claibourne's book but it is taking a tremendous amount of energy. So today I started Rob Bell's new book, and it too is taking a ton of energy. I think it may be time to read a book that doesn't require me to rethink everything that I know. Of course I have about 10 books on my bookshelf still waiting for me to dive into. And none of them are mindless, and I think pretty much all of them will challenge me in some way or another.

So for now, I'll keep reading. I'll have some free time here soon with my Disciple Romans ending, and a couple of other things just falling into place and opening up some doors for me to have a little more time for myself. Hopefully that will stick and I won't just go and put more in my life that takes up time.
