The Narrow Gate
The original blog, Down In Mississippi, shared stories from 2008 and 2009 of the hope and determination of people in the face of disaster wrought by the hurricanes Rita and Katrina in 2005, of work done primarily by volunteers from churches across America and with financial support of many aid agencies and private donations and the Church. My Mississippi posts really ended with the post of August 16, 2009. Much work, especially for the neediest, remained undone after the denominational church pulled out. Such is the nature of institutions. The world still needs your hands for a hand up. I commend to you my seven stories, Down in Mississippi I -VII, at the bottom of this page and the blog posts. They describe an experience of grace.

We had quite the Palm Sunday service this morning. This week defines the character of Easter People, or Christianity. Of all the events in history, this is THE disruptive event. We had no traditional sermon today, just a disruptive service in honor of the event. Therefore, you will find posted this week only a reflection on today's service.
