Join us online this Sunday, April 5, 2020, Palm/Passion Sunday, for a virtual Service of Word, Prayer, and Communion. We will be reading from the Gospel of Matthew, chapter 21:1-11 and then moving to chapters 26 & 27. Jesus enters Jerusalem with triumph at the beginning of the week, but by the end of the week the hour of darkness has come. The crowd will turn. Our Lenten Journey will bring us to the cross. Where is our part in the story? Do we cheer with the crowd on Sunday? Do we jeer with the crowd on Friday? Do we seek out Christ’s truth and teaching during the week, only to scatter from the Garden of Gethsemane? Or do we stay with Jesus to the end, even as we witness him crucified?
