Palm Sunday

Good people of West Parish,

Palm Sunday is this Sunday!

I shared with the Governing Board this week that Palm Sunday is probably my very favorite church celebration.   Why?   Because we know so much about the specific historical time and place – the city of Jerusalem, the Roman soldiers, the Passover festival.   We know how many people were likely in the city, and what sort of guards were at the temple.   It is into these specifics that Jesus rode.   

The events of Palm Sunday probably really happened.   So we can imagine it in a vivid away.   And then what does it say about Jesus?   What does it say to us about the kingdom of heaven?   About God?   How does the “triumphal entry“ challenge us today?

See you on Sunday to wave our palms!
