Pastor David Ball reminds us on this Palm Sunday, of the world's desperate longing for peace. Too often that search overlooks the humble tableau of Jesus riding a lowly donkey through the streets of Jerusalem, the event commemorated on this day. According to scripture, those present that day proclaimed "peace in heaven," the very throne-room of God. But that peace comes only at the price paid by Jesus in the week to follow. The pathway to peace with God is paved with the tears and blood of Jesus. We do well to engage in remembrances of these truths during this Holy Week.
The Scripture Lessons for the Day were:
- Luke 19:29 - 40
- Mark 14:32 - 15:39
