A Beautiful Idea for Palm Sunday
How can we publicly acknowledge this important day on our calendar when so many of us will be behind closed doors?
What if everyone, on Saturday evening or in the early morning of Palm Sunday, were to put a branch on the door of their house or on the window?
It could be any green branch you can get. This would help, despite the social distancing, to be connected as we enter into the Holiest of Weeks.
We could all take a picture of our decorated doors, and email the images to firstname.lastname@example.org
We will post them to SJCC’s Facebook page.
We may be physically isolated, but not separated. We are united as the body of Christ.
As you place your branch on your door you might like to recite this prayer:
Increase our faith O God as we place our hope you
And graciously hear our prayer
as we call on you
that we who today display these branches
to hail Christ in his triumph,
may bear fruit for you by good works accomplished in him.
who lives and reigns for ever and ever. Amen
