On Palm Sunday the crowds shouted “Hosanna!” On Good Friday the crowds shouted “Crucify him!” Most of us are happy to shout “Hosanna”, and would never shout “crucify”. But there’s a third option – to run away, like the disciples did on Thursday night. When we run away, we don’t deny Jesus, but we avoid him. If we do that, then our faith won’t grow, and nor will our church.

Listen to the sermon preached by the Revd Bryce Amner on Palm Sunday 25 March 2018.
