Palm Sunday marks the beginning of the last week of Jesus’s life. We call it Holy Week. It begins with the triumphant entry into Jerusalem with shouts of “Hosana to the King!” But the situation soon sours as Jesus upends the norms of society. This is the week when he taught in the temple, shared a meal with his closest friends, demonstrated servanthood, and found himself betrayed, abandoned, and ultimately crucified by the authorities.
In this Palm/Passion Sunday worship service, we acknowledge the celebration while we also acknowledge the anguish of the passion. We hope that this Palm Sunday/Passion Week service will bless you and yours.
