Easter Week

We began Easter Week yesterday with the celebration of Palm Sunday, that strange day in the Christian calendar, which begins with the shouting of Hosanna, Blessed is he who comes in the name of the Lord, and ends with Holy Communion, a remembrance of the Last Supper Jesus shared with His disciples.  From here on, we move through Holy Week, descending to the pain of betrayal, entering into the fear of the upper room, sharing the darkness of Gethsemane and huddling in despair at the foot of the Cross.
    But for us, an Easter people, the Cross is not the end of our journey.  Out of the darkness, we move forward into light, celebrating the joy of the Resurrection of Jesus Christ our Lord and the proclamation that "He is Risen.  He is risen indeed!  Hallelujah."

   Listed below are opportunities at SPPC to share the moments leading up to that joyful Easter morning.  All are welcome.
