Palm Sunday is recognized in Christian churches as the day Jesus of Galilee arrived in Jerusalem to confront Roman imperialism with a movement to liberate the oppressed. Jesus posed a radical commitment to his followers that continues to impact our world millennia later. UUs have a love/hate relationship with this narrative for good reasons. But, what can this call to a world-changing radical commitment still mean for our community?
