We begin this Sunday with the joyful, triumphant celebration of Palm Sunday. The children will distribute the palms as we sing “All Glory, Laud and Honor,” and the choir will sing an Alleluia and “Ride On, Ride On in Majesty.”
Then the children will go back for religious exploration with Joey Hawkins and the service will move into the final days of Jesus’ life, from the Last Supper to the Garden of Gethsemane to the Cross. Five readers will tell the story, interspersed with a short skit and verses of “What Wondrous Love Is This,” “O Sacred Head Now Wounded” and “When I Survey the Wondrous Cross.”
The sermon will be on “The Way of Suffering Love,” looking at the mysterious power of love when it submits to the suffering that inevitably comes in life. Suffering endured by love, undergone for the sake of love, can be transformative for the one who suffers and for the world.
That is how we will begin Holy Week. The next event will be the Maundy Thursday Last Supper Seder Dinner Theater on March 29th. Please make your reservation right away if you would like to attend. We are almost at capacity, and will stop taking reservations soon. You can read about it by clicking here.
