“Hosanna! Blessed is the one who comes in the name of the Lord!” (Mark 11:9)

What does it mean to come in someone else’s name? Think about the various responsibilities you have throughout the week; in whose name do you come in each of them? How might it change what you do or how you approach what you do if you understood yourself to be coming into each situation in the name of God?

When we celebrate,
and when we protest,
we are thankful
that you are present
with us, O God.
Help us discern
when to challenge authority,
and when to use power for good.
May we continue to follow
in the way of Jesus.
