11th Hour Preacher Party: Palms, Passion or Both Edition
Dear Gals and Pals, you are now entering Holy Week. You may not turn back. You must keep going forward. We will all be with you, praying for you, throughout the next week, until we all emerge on the other side of the Feast of the Resurrection.
We enter Holy Week tomorrow, on "Palm Sunday", as it was called when I was a little girl. Or "Passion Sunday", as we call it now. What do you call it? Which takes precedence, palms or passion? And, how do you observe the day? Do you do anything special, other than palms? (Hint: my church has a tradition of getting a donkey every year). Let us know what creative plans you have for the day, or, for that matter, for the week.
Today is my birthday, so I believe there are special plans for me throughout the day. I have the coffee (fair trade toffee caramel is my fave) and cinnamon Tea, but, truth be told, instead of blueberry pancakes, I think there will be some special birthday surprise. I'll tell you more about it later. I'm sure it won't have any calories.
So, I invite you come come for breakfast and conversation, stay for support and encouragement throughout the day, as we enter this Holiest of Weeks.
