Did Jesus know at the first of the week as he entered Jerusalem that by the time it all ended, he would be put to death on a cross? Did he know the shouts of Hosanna! that rang in his ears would be replaced by shouts of Crucify him! just days later? Did he intentionally choose to ride on a donkey, to make a statement about leadership?
We can't know what was on Jesus' mind. But if you join us in worship, we will look at the significance of what we've come to call Palm Sunday--in four words. Rev. Bob Shaw brings these speaking from Luke 19.
Worship today brings together a blend, just over 25 minutes, of prayer, scripture, message, singing, and a special time of communion at the end. We hope that you'll be blessed by worshiping with DisciplesNet, finding ways your own faith in God can grow.
As we do every week, our closing moments together include a time of communion (breaking of the bread). We invite you to participate if you would like with some type of actual bread and drink you supply, or these elements held in your mind. You may also meditate as we tell of Jesus' invitation to "do this in remembrance of me."
