Holy Week Starts Now

I apologize again for the break in daily updates.  The last two posts on my favorite Bible stories have been posted.

Welcome to Holy Week!  Just yesterday, we remembered Jesus' triumphal entry into Jerusalem.  He was treated like a king returning to the Holy City.  Of course, we crammed in the Passion narrative as well.  This week, we will go over Jesus' Passion again, but we will do so in a more deliberate manner.  We will take our time going down this road with Jesus and allow ourselves to be immersed in the events "about" to take place.  While we know that Easter is soon approaching, we are taking this time to more fully acknowledge all that happened before.

On Ash Wednesday, we were all invited to the observance of a holy Lent.  Now that Holy Week is here, we have but a short way to go.  Continue in the practice of self-examination and repentance.  Continue in your Lenten disciplines.  Continue in reading and meditating on God's holy Word.  This is certainly a busy time of year, but I invite you today to continue in observing a holy Lent.  Observe a holy Holy Week.  If you can, make time to go to a local church's services each day this week.

The path of Lent is coming to its close, and Easter is almost upon us.  Let us walk this road together and prepare for the great joy to come.
