Palm Passion Sunday: Fast from Apathy, Embrace Lament

Sunday, March 24
(Bring Your Own Hosanna Protest Sign) All ages are invited to participate in our opening Hosanna Palm Protest Parade. The people cried out Hosanna which means “help us or save us!” We hope you will bring a simple sign made at home with words expressing your cry for justice or peace in our world. Later in the service, as we remember Jesus’ sorrow in the Garden of Gethsemane, we join the Birds of Gaza project to both lament the loss and honor the lives of the children lost in Gaza.  Peace doves will be available to write down their names as well as express prayers for peace and justice in our world.

If you plan to attend, please RSVP and sign up.  Four volunteers are needed to cook or bring a meat or vegetarian soup option. Other attendees are invited to sign up to bring bread, juice, or veggies and dip to share. We also invite volunteers for set up and clean up.
