Palm/Passion Sunday

Palm/Passion Sunday

Introduction to our service –

We begin Holy Week with Palm Sunday, when the triumphal entry of Jesus into Jerusalem is celebrated.  Join us for worship when we will raise palm branches with shouts of Hosana.  Our worship service will include a dramatic reading of the passion according to St. Mark.

Introduction to this week’s readings –

This week, the center of the church’s year, is one of striking contrasts: Jesus rides into Jerusalem surrounded by shouts of glory, only to be left alone to die on the cross, abandoned by even his closest friends. Mark’s gospel presents Jesus in his complete human vulnerability: agitated, grieved, scared, forsaken. Though we lament Christ’s suffering and all human suffering, we also expect God’s salvation: in the wine and bread, Jesus promises that his death will mark a new covenant with all people. We enter this holy week thirsty for the completion of God’s astonishing work.
