Call to Worship
One: Come. Come seeking words and connection.
All: Come to let your tongue give praise. Come. Come to find your voice. Come to hear the response. Come. Come to open your ears. Come to listen. Come. Come to be healed by the silence. Come to stand together. Come to find God.
One: Come O Holy One, speak to us in the silence with wisdom greater than ours, with love deeper than ours, with change wider than ours.
Opening Prayer ~ Karen Richter
Palm Sunday Reading ~ Shared by Ron Heisner
The next day the great crowd that had come to the festival heard that Jesus was coming to Jerusalem. So they took branches of palm trees and went out to meet him, shouting, "Hosanna! Blessed is the one who comes in the name of the Lord-- the King of Israel!"
Jesus found a young donkey and sat on it; as it is written: "Do not be afraid, daughter of Zion. Look, your king is coming, sitting on a donkey's colt!"
His disciples did not understand these things at first; but when Jesus was glorified, then they remembered that these things had been written of him and had been done to him.
Special Music ~ Hosanna, Loud Hosanna
