Triumphal Entry

While this Sunday we celebrate “Palm Sunday,” when we hear the story of Jesus’s entry into Jerusalem from the Gospel of Luke, there aren’t any palm branches mentioned. There aren’t any “Hosannas!” proclaimed either. In fact, as Jesus nears the city, he stops and weeps over it, grieving that the people did not recognize God among them. It’s a far cry from the story we usually think of on Palm Sunday, full of excitement and joy from the people and Jesus alike. Yet, perhaps it is a more relatable Palm Sunday, one that matches the mood of spending a second Holy Week in relative isolation, weighed down by the sorrows of a year-long pandemic. Listen as Intern Pastor Miriam explores how we can recognize God among us despite our grief and pain.

Accompanying Scripture:
Psalm 118:1-18, Luke 19:24-44
