On Palm Sunday morning we gather as a Community in the atrium, before the central doors of the church. When we enter into the church waving our palm branches, we symbolically enter into Jerusalem where once again we will relive the events of Holy Week. Our Lenten journey is almost over. It should not surprise us to discover that the passion of Christ is superimposed like a double-exposed photograph over this joyful procession. The service that began with enthusiastic hosannas concludes with subdued awe at the death of Christ, and we are emotionally confused.
