AS WE APPROACH HOLY WEEK...
Join us for a celebration of Christ's triumphal entry into Jerusalem, the enacted parable of our humble King who will neither be confused with nor co-opted by the nationalistic or religious or powers that be. He would become our salvation by what he suffered - for the glory of the Father and for true freedom from sin and fear of death. For his Kingdom, that has come and is coming every day as we follow him.
WHAT ARE WE DOING?
We will begin inside with a blessing, but will then go out for a processional, following the cross to the altar, singing "Who Will Ascend God's Holy Mountain?" We wave and will lay our palm branches down as the procession of musicians and children go by, joining them as they pass.
Like the crowd, we want Jesus on our own terms and for our own ends. But Jesus wants us for something far greater than realizing our limited aspirations. He wants us for the Kingdom. And he wants the Kingdom for us.
And an important part of Palm Sunday is the Liturgy of the Passion, during which the narrative of Jesus' final days are read and relived together.
If you still need to RSVP for the Easter Vigil and/or purchase Easter flowers, please do so here.
