Palm Sunday, 2017

Re-entering the nave to "All Glory, Laud, and Honor"
Bedecked in red, the congregation marched around the block in emulation of Jesus' entrance into Jerusalem.

This year we read aloud Matthew's account of the events of Holy Week through Good Friday. In a culture that has very few shared rituals it boosts mental health to turn off the cellphones and give undivided attention to what's being said, familiar though it may be.

Next Sunday we'll discover how the story turns out.
