This Week at JMPC 4.5.2020

And every time I read the Palm Sunday story about Jesus’ triumphal entry into Jerusalem, I think of Rudyard Kipling’s story, “The Man Who Would Be King”. Kipling’s story is about two former British soldiers on an adventure. Daniel Dravot and Peachey Carnehan have decided to become kings. They have a cache of modern rifles and plan to find a king or chief in some remote location, help him defeat his enemies, and then take over. That is exactly what they do. They find Kafiristan. The tribal chief is having a dispute with a neighboring community. Danny and Peachy offer their support. They have fair skin that makes them seem a bit mystical. They are brave warriors. And they have rifles. With the rifles, the conflict ends quickly. The Kafiristanis are delighted. All is good. They make Danny and Peachy the kings of Kafiristan. But then Danny and Peachy are found out. They are only men. There is nothing mystical about them. And despite their well-earned popularity, their new subjects revolt. Danny and Peachy are not who they claimed to be. Despite all they have done for the people, they are denounced as frauds. Daniel is killed. Peachy is driven insane and for the rest of his life carries Daniel’s head around in a burlap sack. Popularity can be cool, but it has its limitations and risks. Perhaps it is better to let it go? That is what Jesus did when he came to Jerusalem. Go to the John McMillan Presbyterian Church Facebook Live broadcast on Palm Sunday at 9:30 and hear Pastor Jeff preach, “Let it Go – Popularity!” based on Matthew 21: 1-11. We will be celebrating the Lord’s Supper – ONLINE!! Set out your own bread and cup, or just observe. This is how we remember Jesus.
