Pause for Prayer: PALM SUNDAY

Image source

Our worship today begins with blessing and waving palm branches and singing Hosanna! Even here, on the first day of Holy Week, there's room for joy in Lent!  But moments later the mood of our prayer changes with the day's readings, culminating in the gospel of the passion (the suffering and death) of Jesus.  Today's scriptures tell the story.

Let's pause for prayer on this Palm Sunday with two songs:  first, Chanticleer's beautiful rendition of Orlando Gibbons' 16th century composition, "Hosanna to the Son of David" and then the contemporary piece by David Haas, "Now We Remain."  The two songs are centuries apart but serve as one in capturing this day's prayer.
