If we decide to follow Jesus on this Way toward Jerusalem, we might stop this spiral of violence, this “rally ‘round the family with a pocket full of shells.” 
We might start to hear the voice of the victims telling us what peace looks like.

It may look like foolish to some. We may find ourselves surrounded by the marginalized and outcast, the lost and the lonely, the broke and the hurting, those who at one time couldn’t vote, or attend church services, or get married—maybe even children.

And yet this foolishness, this fearless vulnerability of the Lamb marching in the Lamb’s parade, we recognize to be the wisdom and the strength of God.
