As we began the holiest week of the year, we joined with Christians around the world to commemorate Jesus’ triumphal entry into Jerusalem, an entry that will lead to his death. Crowds greeted him that day by laying down palm branches as he entered.
We asked you to take a green branch of any sort and place it over the door or in your window at home as an act of solidarity, and we loved seeing all your beautiful and creative entryways and "palms."
Creativity at its finest! Parishioner Lauren Dore made a cross out of daffodil leaves.
Kathleen Butler chalked a palm and "Hosanna!" on the sidewalk.
The Strike family challenged themselves to a morning run on Palm Sunday and passed by the church and school and snapped this picture. Sarah writes, "It was just about the same time we should have been in church celebrating Palm Sunday. Instead, there were beautiful palms left on the church doors. Everything looked beautiful. Blooming trees, flowers, and a wonderful brand new sidewalk. I hope you can feel the love, prayers, and strength, that our family is sending to you, and your loved ones, during this unprecedented time. #HTStrong."
The rest of the doors used all types of greenery—from foraged leaves to raspberry branches—and plants like boxwood and birds of paradise. Thank you for sharing and strengthening the spirit of our community!
