Part of me thinks Palm Sunday worship is all too much—too loud, too celebratory.
Lent | Liturgy of the Palms (Year C)
Psalm 118:1-2, 19-29; Luke 19:28-40
During Holy Week, it's common for worship leaders to ask people to consider their place in the drama of Jesus' final days. To what extent do we betray him, deny him, insult him, crucify him? When do we, like the crowds, find ourselves gawking at suffering with prurient glee? When do we, like the thieves, alternately ridicule the truth, then believe in it? When do we, like the centurion, make our confession--though perhaps a moment too late?
