Palm Sunday: Where are You?

Palm SundayPalm Sunday is the start of Holy Week and our journey to Easter’s celebrations.  It’s a very human tendency to want to skip over the hard emotions of Holy Week–betrayal, inner struggle, suffering, death– and go from the “Hosannas!” of Palm Sunday to the “Alleluias!” of Easter.  But Palm Sunday itself offers us an opportunity for honest self-reflection.  Christine Sine describes the contrast between Jesus’ entry into Jerusalem with the traditional Passover entry of the Roman governor (Pontius Pilate in our story) with all his military might.  And the question for us each Palm Sunday is which parade are you attending?
