Placebos are fakes — fake pills, fake surgeries, fake acupuncture, fake athletic performance enhancers, etc. The thing about placebos, though, is that they change people. This is because a placebo is a story we tell ourselves about what’s going to happen. Then, in many cases, it happens even when there are no active ingredients in the medicine or no surgical procedure was performed. The story you tell yourself about your life is powerful. When you see your story in the story of Holy Week, it can literally change your life. Give a listen to Pastor John’s sermon from Palm Sunday 2018.
