Many people spread their cloaks on the road, and others spread leafy branches they had cut in the fields. Mark 11:8.
The destination of our journey through Lent is Holy Week. Palm Sunday orients us to Holy Week with its procession and presentation of the story of the last days of Jesus’ life. Following the reading of the Passion according to Mark, we will hear an invitation to attend to the spiritual depths of Holy Week.
The services of Holy Week, beginning with Palm Sunday, contain the earliest movements of what would become Christian worship. People who lived in Jerusalem commemorated the remembrance of Jesus’ arrest and crucifixion by devotional walking, and prayer.
Following the service we will hear a violin/viola duet from Andrea Vogt and Preston Barbare. This is a Palm Sunday gift to the congregation from Andrea and Preston. Invite your neighbors and friends.
Confirmation students will wash the Family Promise laundry at the laundromat in Maynard.
This is the last day to sign up to give an Easter flower. The cost for a lily or a tulip is $8.50. Memorial notes will be printed in the Easter bulletin.
