Palm Sunday - Holy Eucharist II

The liturgies of Palm Sunday unfold as a great drama in which each of us has a role.  We begin our service on the patio, blessing the palm branches of the day, and then processing along with Jesus as he entered the holy city of Jerusalem.  Once inside the church, we engage in that great dramatic reading of the passion story, moving from the joyful entry into the city… through the last supper… his arrest, trial, and execution… and finally to the tomb where Jesus is buried.  A simple celebration of the Holy Eucharist concludes our service, as we are left to ponder the implications of the story we just encountered.
