April 2, 2023 | Palm Sunday

Pastor Denise Clark-Jones


Today we celebrate Palm Sunday commemorating the triumphal entry of Jesus into Jerusalem to celebrate the Jewish Passover. The crowds swelled by pilgrims also coming to Jerusalem for this special celebration and to give Jesus a joyous welcome befitting a victorious king returning from battle. There is palpable hope that Jesus is the Messiah coming to fulfill the prophecy of the Hebrew scriptures. Though we share the joy of the crowd, our celebration is bittersweet because we know that a mere five days later the crowd’s adulations will become vitriolic insults. His disciples’ loyalty will turn to betrayal. We are invited to walk with Christ this week. It is not an easy walk, but one that is necessary. What Jesus did on Maundy Thursday, when he instituted the Sacrament of the Lord’s Supper, and on Good Friday, when he sacrificed his life for us for the forgiveness of our sins, reveals the path to the joy of Easter morning. Let us make this pilgrimage together this week, meeting as a community of faith to worship on Thursday evening, Friday at midday, and Easter Sunday morning
