Our personal Hosannas
Palm Sunday image

Thinking of the crowds waving Palm branches and calling out to Jesus ‘Save us!’ as he entered Jerusalem on the donkey. I guess when we gather in Church it’s as though we are all calling out to Jesus, on behalf of ourselves, our community and our world: ‘Save us!’ Perhaps it’s easier to say ‘Hosanna’ as one of the crowd, but what strikes me is that this Palm Sunday each of us as individuals can say ‘Hosanna!’ to Jesus, ‘Save

Encountering the Unexpected Messiah: Palm Sunday sermon
Adam

The theme of this morning’s sermon was ‘Jesus, the unexpected Messiah’ – unexpected not in the sense that the Jewish people were not longing for a rescuer, but in the sense Jesus’ Messianic style was very different from what they’d expected.

Palm Sunday: Bible passages for the service
Palm2

Bible passage for Palm Sunday. I love the picture below, which I just came across today on the Coracle website. For myself, I imagine the scene as a bit more bustling, but there is something about that image of Jesus, calm and stately which is profound, and touches my heart (John) Matthew 21:1-13 Jesus comes to Jerusalem as king As they approached Jerusalem and came to Bethphage on the Mount of Olives, Jesus sent two disciples, 2 saying to them,
