On this day, Jesus the Christ
entered the city of Jerusalem.
The people welcomed him with palms and shouts of praise, but the path before him led to self-giving, suffering, and death. Today we greet him as our King,
although we know his crown is thorns and his throne a cross.
We come to prepare for the holiest of weeks.
We will journey through praise, with joy on our lips;
we will travel through betrayal and death,
cradling hope deep in our hearts.
