Holy Week is the heart of the church’s ritual, theological, and missional life.
The life and mission of Jesus meet their fullest test. Jesus stares directly into the face of the structures of sin and the powers of death and remains true to his calling and the work of God’s kingdom.
Palm/Passion Sunday mark Jesus' entry into the city of Jerusalem and the start of his last days with his disciples.
The lectionary readings are: Isaiah 50:4-9a, Psalm 31:9-16, Philippians 2:5-11 and Matthew 26:14-27:66
