If you grew up in the church you probably knew the story of Zacchaeus and the catchy song... “Zacchaeus was a wee little man.” His story can be so familiar that we miss out on its scandalous nature. A tax collector encounters Jesus and finds that there's room for him in the Kingdom of God. This is a powerful story about stepping away from comfort and toward something completely new! After having this powerful experience, Zacchaeus doesn’t just stay in the tree or even in his home. He becomes a force for good in the world. A real leader doesn’t just leave us where we are but is a catalyst for the Kingdom that has offered us grace. This story is almost too risky for us to have children sing about it! The story of Zacchaeus invites us to be fully seen and to become catalysts for change in the world.
