Last year I posted this too late for anybody to really be able to participate, including myself, but this time I'm only a day and a half late!
Hope you all had a wonderful Palm Sunday yesterday. The weather here was lovely and we had such an awesome church service. Last night I watched the Discovery Channel's 3 hour special on "Who Was Jesus?". It was sad that they had a Baptist minister and two other Biblical scholars, yet not one of them seemed to be a true believer. They basically just presented Jesus as a historical man instead of God himself. And, they gave about 2 minutes out of the the three hours to his resurrection.
I'm anxious to read through these Scripture passages this week as we remember the last week of our Savior's life on earth.

The final week of Christ's life leading up to His crucifixion and resurrection has been known as "Holy Week" throughout the liturgical history of the church. This week provides a powerful opportunity for each of us to retrace Christ's steps that week...and journey with Him...and reflect on who He is and what He did...and worship.
