Worship Preview- Be part of our dynamic community of faith!
The Sunday before Easter we refer to as Palm Sunday because Jesus was greeted by an impromptu crowd of people waving palm branches. The story of the palms during Jesus’ triumphal entry is told by Matthew (21:1-11), Mark (11:1-11), and John (12:12-19). But Gospel writer Luke (19:28-40) surprisingly omits the story of the palms! What caught Luke’s attention was not the palm branches but the chanting, “Blessed is the one who comes in the name of the Lord!” When the “religious” leaders tried to stop the singing, Jesus said, no way! “Even if I told them to keep quiet, the stones themselves would start to sing!” Find out why Palm Sunday may deserve a better name as the start to Holy Week, eight-days that begin and ends with stones… from singing to rolling in the pastor’s message titled, When Stones Sing.
Barbara Cain will be singing, He Grew the Tree, words & music by Chuck Lawrence, written in 1982 and recorded by Barbara Mandrell. This is a song with a great reminder of God’s plan for the gift of salvation.
Following the message we will sing a video hymn traditionally sung as worshippers reenact Jesus entry into Jerusalem on Palm Sunday, All Glory Laud and Honor. Though we don’t have city gates to proceed through today, this hymn still acts as a royal hymn of praise and proclamation. Today we praise the “Redeemer, King” because we know just what kind of King he was and is – an everlasting King who reigns not just in Jerusalem, but over the entire earth. What more could we do but praise Jesus with glory, laud, and honor?
In our closing hymn, Hosanna, Loud Hosanna, the first two verses narrate the first Palm Sunday in the past tense, but the third verse shifts to the present tense to emphasize what current singers do and believe. The repeated elements in this anonymous German tune suggest the repetitive patterns in a crowd’s chant.
“…That you may be filled to the measure of all the fullness of God” (Eph. 3:18).
Whatever your religious affiliation, or none at all, we all hear Jesus say, “Come to me all who are overburdened, and find rest for your soul!” Everyone is welcomed at Cold Spring Church. Yes, everyone!
