NEW blossoms and a short Sunday sermon

Happy Sunday! I’m going crazy and shooting tree blossoms all over town!  They are just SO pretty! Here’s another version:

I recently attended a workshop given by a religion professor.  He was very knowledgeable about the New Testament and told us about his family’s tradition of preparing for Easter.  He’s put together a website with all of his resources (HERE).

He, of course, starts with Palm Sunday (next week!!!!).

He writes: Jesus’ triumphal entry into Jerusalem has a long history in the Christian tradition, and it plays an important in the liturgies of the Roman Catholic, Eastern Orthodox, and some Protestant churches. For me celebrating Palm Sunday truly opens Holy Week, setting it apart from other weeks by focusing my thoughts and faith on Christ my king.

I hope to take some time with my family and study “Resurrection Week” a bit more in depth this year also.  Have a great day!  Do or learn something NEW!
