Palm Sunday

Palm Sunday is the final Sunday of Lent, the beginning of Holy Week, and commemorates the triumphant arrival of Christ in Jerusalem, days before he was crucified. Palm Sunday is known as such because the faithful will often receive palm fronds which they use to participate in the reenactment of Christ’s arrival in Jerusalem.

Palm Sunday for many in Jesus’ fandom is very different this year. It’s happening without the fanfare of the palms and other ceremonial trappings. Maybe it’s helping those who celebrate be more intentional and introspective. Thinking more about the event and what it means. Jesus came into Jerusalem with a humble heart knowing what awaited him. His journey would be one of the most important road trips in history.

One thought on “Palm Sunday”

  1. What an incredible day today was all those years ago. I was thinking of a hymn this morning and laughed when I heard the sound of lawnmowers: ‘This is My Father’s World’
