Jesus is about to face the worst week of his life. And in the middle of the parade towards Jerusalem, Jesus weeps. But he does not weep for himself and the suffering he is about to endure, he weeps for us. He weeps for all who will suffer because sin was chosen over the peace Jesus offered. When the future happens and it hurts, compassion is found in the tears of a savior who suffers/weeps with us.

Jesus sees a man working behind his table sitting all alone. He invites him to follow him. And from that moment on, Levi, the tax collector, would never sit alone. And then, Levi turns around and throws a party with Jesus and all his tax collector friends (who probably spent much time alone because they were despised in the community). This week Pastor Mark discusses the impact on our community and neighborhoods when we embrace the practice, "Nobody Sits Alone" posture.

Bridge builders don't judge someone if they can be judged for something. This week Pastor Mark talks about the impact judgement has on our capacity to build bridges towards the people who don't know Christ. And what God can do when we suspend judgement.
