We at the end of another week of lockdown here in the UK and still things feel really strange.
The video calls are still increasing on social media, and although Covid-19 is a serious concern at the moment, people are posting funny videos on social media.
Another thing that has become a regular thing over the last two weeks, is that that on a certain night at 8pm people go to their front door to thank the people of the National Health Service, and the people who are delivering food etc to those who can’t get out for their messages etc.
As we enter into the third week of lockdown and you are reading this in the UK please observe the government guidelines and stay safe, stay well!
12The next day the great crowd that had come for the festival heard that Jesus was on his way to Jerusalem. 13They took palm branches and went out to meet him, shouting, “Hosanna!” “Blessed is he who comes in the name of the LORD!” “Blessed is the king of Israel!” 14Jesus found a young donkey and sat on it, as it is written: 15″Do not be afraid, Daughter Zion; see, your king is coming, seated on a donkey’s colt.” 16At first his disciples did not understand all this. Only after Jesus was glorified did they realize that these things had been written about him and that these things had been done to him. 17Now the crowd that was with him when he called Lazarus from the tomb and raised him from the dead continued to spread the word. 18Many people, because they had heard that he had performed this sign, went out to meet him. 19So the Pharisees said to one another, “See, this is getting us nowhere. Look how the whole world has gone after him!”
Today is Palm Sunday marking the beginning of Holy week leading to Jesus’ death and resurrection. I don’t know about you but I can’t decide in my mind which is the more important, Christmas and the lead up to it or Holy week and Easter .
I suppose they are both important in their own right
