Moms View Message Board: General Discussion: Palm Sunday - wow homestretch
Palm Sunday already. Easter is next week!
Anyone else celebrate this day. Some of our Greek, Russian and Middle Eastern friends celebrate on a different calendar and have other traditions with their families. Love to hear what you do. Aware that I carry message and history to the next generation - my children.
We went to church this morning-it was fun - - the great entrance of Jesus into Jerusalem. . We love getting the palms, making the little crosses to give to neighbors and the elderly shut_ins. I keep one in my car the rest of the year - just to remember.
Of course what follows is the reading of the Passion, documenting one of the great tragic bureaucratic failures in human history where men who know this man is innocent cover themselves rather than step out courageously - they actually let him get executed. I certainly can identify with the fear of stepping out. Joseph of Arimethea is documented as a brave and wise man - who couldn't stop them but he could bring dignity and honor to a dead Jesus.
Real challenges to me.
