As Lent comes to a close, beginning with Palm Sunday this weekend, our focus shifts to Holy Week. The week when we remember the last days of Jesus’ life. His triumphal entry into Jerusalem, his command of love to the disciples, the last supper, his crucifixion, and ultimately, resurrection.
In order to enter more fully into the week, we invite you to join us in a rhythm of daily prayer. Our social media pages (Facebook, Twitter, Google+) will offer selections from the Psalms and appointed Holy Week texts. If you haven’t already, be sure to “Like” us on Facebook or follow on Twitter/Google+ so you can receive the updates.
Beginning Palm Sunday, readings will be available around the traditional schedule of praying the hours (12 am, 3 am, 6 am, 9am, 12 pm, 3 pm, 6 pm, 9 pm). Come and go as you please, and feel free to share with anyone who might benefit from the exercise.
We pray this will be an opportunity to enter more deeply into the events of Holy Week as the church around the world follows Jesus’ journey to the cross.
“All we, like sheep, have gone astray; we have turned each to our own way; and the Lord has laid on him the iniquity of us all.” –Isaiah 53:6
