Palm Sunday

Sing Hosanna! Hosanna! to the Lord.

Palm Sunday commemorates the journey of Jesus into Jerusalem before the Crucifixion.

Parishioners were given crosses fashioned from palm leaves as we entered the Sanctuary decorated with pots of palm trees. I wish my cross wouldn't get all dried up and brittle as it would make such a meaningful bookmark.

Good Friday services will be held from 12.30 to 3pm and when we're coming out of church I'll be anticipating rainstorms. I don't remember a year when it hasn't poured with 'tears from heaven' at the crucifixion hour. I wonder if this happens all over the world?

Easter morning sunrise service at 6.30 am is usually held at the football field as we worship with parishioners from sister churches. There is translation of Bible readings and sermons from English into Mandarin and Tamil. Last year we had Korean as well.

A Very Blessed Easter!
