Palm Sunday

Palm Sunday. Ride on, Ride on in Majesty and Lift high the cross. Processions with palms. Thinking about 1stC politics. Jesus the rabble rouser. Jesus the hobo? Jesus the political animal. Jesus the challenge to authority. The beginning of Holy Week. Today's collect says it all really:

Jesus, when you rode into Jerusalem
the people waved palms with shouts of acclamation.
Grant that when the shouting dies
we may still walk beside you even to a cross.
