Dear Friends,

This is a very special week as we celebrate the entry of Jesus into Jerusalem on Palm Sunday. Next Friday, we have a very special recorded service for Good Friday available beginning at noon. It’s hard to not spill the beans but you will enjoy the readings and dramatic reading so make time and put it on your calendar for Friday, April 2nd.

If you would like to read ahead, our scripture for Sunday is Mark 11:1-11. Jesus enters Jerusalem on a donkey, a humble donkey representing strength and stability. Imagine the crowd, the shouts of “Hosanna” and “Blessed is the one who comes in the name of the Lord!” It must have been exciting and very moving. I look forward to sharing my thoughts and remembering that very special day with you.

This will be a communion Sunday as we remember the Passover Jesus shared with his disciples. I hope you will come or at least prepare a love feast of crackers and water at home to celebrate with us. It will do your heart good to remember God’s gift of grace and love to all of humanity in his only Begotten Son, Jesus.

God bless us as we prepare for the passion of Christ this final week of Lent.

Pastor Mark
