Today is Palm Sunday; the Sunday before Easter and is the start of what the Christian community calls Passion Week. It is a BIG DEAL! In the meetings, Easter is not celebrated as a religious holiday, but for me, one of the things I was most excited about when leaving the meetings was getting to celebrate Easter. I could not wait to celebrate corporately the resurrection of Jesus. And I was not disappointed.
I want to share a link from my church I think may be helpful for some of my readers who are not accustomed to celebrating and/or even acknowledging Passion week. They have put together a Passion Week Devotional Guide that begins today. For me, just taking the time in a more concentrated way to enter into Jesus’ feelings this week is very powerful. I want to encourage my readers to check it out. Here is the link:
Today there will be a Palm Sunday services. Thursday I plan to attend the Maundy Thursday service, and Friday the Good Friday service and of course, the service on Easter itself. I just want to immerse myself in this week and let God speak to me in any way He chooses to this week. I know I will not be disappointed.
“Jesus, this week is all about You. I know every week is all about You but this week may we focus much more intently on You. It’s the least we can do.”
