Palm Sunday is one of the great holy days of the Christian year. I like it because it paints such a clear picture of specific events in the life of Jesus.
It is also a Sunday that functions quite well as an intergenerational worship experience when our children join us, filling an active role in setting the tone for worship.
It also is the beginning of Holy Week, so it plays a pivotal role in our life as Christians. I hope you will be here to experience all of this in worship this Sunday.
Many have appreciated our focus through the sermon series, Dealing With Difficulties That Grip The Soul. We continue on this Lenten journey this week as we read from Mark 14:1-11. Our title is, “FUTURE DOOM.”
Specifically, we will examine the dynamics of facing our own death or sense of mortality. How can faith help us in such a situation? We will look at this theologically, as well as consider some specific tools that can fortify us in these kinds of struggles.
You know that Easter is coming on April 5. I have suggested you make plans to participate in at least one of our many Easter services this year.
I also hope you will consider participating in Holy Thursday and/or Good Friday. These Holy Week services will deepen your experience of the Gospel and of the great celebration of Easter.
Come when you can and we will worship together. I will look forward to seeing you!
