Palm Sunday

Palm Sunday - A day of triumphant entry - a celebration of the coming of the King. Today we stood with palms in hand and listened to the annual reading of the longest Gospel of the year. We celebrated Jesus' entry and welcome into Jerusalem and listened as joy and celebration turned into deception - lies and treachery. Our joyful hearts light with pregnant expectation turned heavy with sadness as we recounted the betrayal of Jesus by Judas.
How does a triumphant entry on one day turn so wrong in a matter of a few days? Today the entry and later in the week celebration of Passover. As this week unfolds allow yourself to take in each day the events of each day so that you may fully experience the awesomeness of Holy Week.
