Dear Church Family,
Sunday is Palm Sunday! Hard to believe we are about to enter into Holy Week, a week where we will have multiple opportunities  to continue seeking God and going deeper in our faith. I hope you will consider coming to our Maundy-Thursday Service at First Pres Itasca and our Good Friday service here at EGPC.
Throughout this Lenten Season will have been following this series titled: “Seeking”. In the seeking we have been asking honest questions in search of knowing this God we worship. Jesus, entering Jerusalem on Palm Sunday, represents an alternative wisdom that counters the current culture. Marcus Borg in his book The Way Less Traveled, speaks of this alternative wisdom in that it moves from “second hand” religion, in which beliefs are based on what you have heard others say about God, to “firsthand” religion, in which your Christian life is based on “beholding” God. Borg says, “The alternative wisdom of Jesus sees the religious life as a deepening relationship with the Spirit of God, not as a life of requirements an reward.” It is my prayer and hope that each of your will “behold” God’s very presence in your own life and in that beholding cultivate a deep, profoundly moving relationship with the Holy Spirit.

Lenten Blessings, 
Pastor Barbara 







Matthew 21:1-12
21 When they had come near Jerusalem and had reached Bethphage, at the Mount of Olives, Jesus sent two disciples, saying to them, “Go into the village ahead of you, and immediately you will find a donkey tied and a colt with her; untie them and bring them to me. If anyone says anything to you, just say this, ‘The Lord needs them.’ And he will send them immediately.”This took place to fulfill what had been spoken through the prophet:
 “Tell the daughter of Zion,
Look, your king is coming to you,

humble and mounted on a donkey,
and on a colt, the foal of a donkey.”

The disciples went and did as Jesus had directed them; they brought the donkey and the colt and put their cloaks on them, and he sat on them. A very large crowd spread their cloaks on the road, and others cut branches from the trees and spread them on the road. The crowds that went ahead of him and that followed were shouting,
 “Hosanna to the Son of David!
Blessed is the one who comes in the name of the Lord!
Hosanna in the highest heaven!”

10 When he entered Jerusalem, the whole city was in turmoil, asking, “Who is this?” 11 The crowds were saying, “This is the prophet Jesus from Nazareth in Galilee.”
6 12 Then Jesus entered the temple and drove out all who were selling and buying in the temple, and he overturned the tables of the money changers and the seats of those who sold doves.
