If you have ever run track and field, you know that Pole Vaulting is one of the most visually dramatic events of them all. People pole vaulting over the great sand pit. In our spiritual lives, it’s easy to Pole Vault right over the things we find difficult and painful. We can pole vault right over relationships that need to be mended, or behavior needing repentance and confession. We can also pole vault right over Holy Week and the suffering of Jesus and land on Easter…Don’t do it!. On this, this Palm Sunday, NO Pole Vaulting over Holy Week. Join your spiritual family and face into this most precious week, for it will change your life.
