Jesus said, “if they keep quiet, the stones will cry out.” Luke 19:40

Today is Palm Sunday, and even though the church buildings are empty, and we are at home, we are far from being quiet! We will always remember this Palm Sunday for years to come! We are in waiting while actively connecting to one another, singing songs and hymns (Ephesians 5:16-20)! Let us Rejoice in the Lord singing praises louder than ever before (Philippians 4:4-7)! Although we are physically separated from our church family, we are still connected! Ephesians 2:17-18, “He came and preached peace to you who were far away and peace to those who were near. 18 For through him we both have access to the Father by one Spirit. So we can be confident that Nothing is impossible with God, and with his mighty hand prepared in advance a way for All of our sisters and brothers to gather together through various media ways! Where two or more are gathered in my name I am there (Matthew 18:20). It may seem like we are so far away but it’s only a click away, and we are unified through Jesus! Like radio telescopes when you connect more together you reach greater distance and have better vision, so we are to all linked together in a giant array pointing towards God with our focus on Jesus. Each of us a radiant light reaching everyone in sight!

John 12:12-15
Jesus Comes to Jerusalem as King
The next day the great crowd
that had come for the festival
heard that Jesus was on his way
to Jerusalem.
They took palm branches
and went out to meet him, shouting,

“Blessed is he who comes

in the name of the Lord!”

“Blessed is the king of Israel!”
Jesus found a young donkey
and sat on it, as it is written:
“Do not be afraid, Daughter Zion;
see, your king is coming,
seated on a donkey’s colt.”

Zechariah 9:9
Old Testament
Rejoice greatly, Daughter Zion!
Shout, Daughter Jerusalem!
See, your king comes to you,
righteous and victorious,
lowly and riding on a donkey,
on a colt, the foal of a donkey.
Psalm 111
Praise the Lord.
I will extol the Lord with all my heart
in the council of the upright and in the assembly.
Great are the works of the Lord;
they are pondered by all who delight in them.
Glorious and majestic are his deeds,
and his righteousness endures forever.
He has caused his wonders to be remembered;
the Lord is gracious and compassionate.
He provides food for those who fear him;
he remembers his covenant forever.
He has shown his people the power of his works,
giving them the lands of other nations.
The works of his hands are faithful and just;
all his precepts are trustworthy.
They are established for ever and ever,
enacted in faithfulness and uprightness.
He provided redemption for his people;
he ordained his covenant forever—
holy and awesome is his name.
The fear of the Lord is the beginning of wisdom;
all who follow his precepts have good understanding.
To him belongs eternal praise.
