In many evangelical churches the focus is on Palm Sunday (the joyful and triumphant entry of Christ into Jerusalem) and Resurrection Sunday (Jesus' triumph over death). We (the church) often ignore the last supper, the powerful time of prayer in the garden, Judas' kiss of betrayal, Peter's denial, the arrest, the trials and beatings, and even the crucifixion. This Holy Week, I am trying to be different. May I remember the great price Christ paid for my salvation and never forget. Sometimes we have to push through the hard and painful events in order to truly appreciate the beautiful gifts.
