This coming Sunday, April 5th, is Palm Sunday and the beginning of Holy Week. Please read of Christ's Triumphal Entry into Jerusalem. It is found in all four Gospels: Matthew 21:1-9 Mark 11: 1-10 Luke 19: 29-38 John 12: 12-15

Take time to read each one at different times throughout the day. Notice how they are similar and notice how they are different. Remember, Jesus' entry into Jerusalem was the beginning of Jesus' journey to the Cross. What a friend we have in Jesus!

 

This Palm Sunday, instead of holding palms in your hands, I ask you to put your palms together and pray the words of this hymn:

 

Healer of our every ill, light of each tomorrow, give us peace beyond our fear, and hope beyond our sorrow.

You who know our fears and sadness, grace us with Your peace and gladness; Spirit of all comfort, fill our hearts.

Healer of our every ill, light of each tomorrow, give us peace beyond our fear, and hope beyond our sorrow.

In the pain and joy beholding how Your grace is still unfolding. give us all Your vision, God of love.

Healer of our every ill, light of each tomorrow, give us peace beyond our fear, and hope beyond our sorrow. Amen.

("Healer of Our Every Ill" music and lyrics by Marty Haugen,1987)

 

Please look at the website during Holy Week....there will be postings for Maundy Thursday and Good Friday. Easter will have its own special message.

 

God bless you! Stay in, stay well, and pray!

 

Your Sister in Christ,

Pastor Chris Bridge

 

 Leviticus 3:13 (NIV)
He is to lay his hand on its head and slaughter it in front of the Tent of Meeting. Then Aaron's sons shall sprinkle its blood against the altar on all sides.

    Lord, hear my voice.
Let your ears be attentive
    to my cry for mercy.

If you, Lord, kept a record of sins,
    Lord, who could stand?
But with you there is forgiveness,
    so that we can, with reverence, serve you.

I wait for the Lord, my whole being waits,
    and in his word I put my hope.
I wait for the Lord
    more than watchmen wait for the morning,
    more than watchmen wait for the morning.

Israel, put your hope in the Lord,
    for with the Lord is unfailing love
    and with him is full redemption.
