Sunday, April 10, 2022 – The Sixth Sunday in Lent – Palm Sunday
On Passion Sunday we hear again the account of the last days in the life of Jesus,– the events of his betrayal, denial, betrayal, sentencing, and crucifixion. Once again, we hear the account of how far God goes to show us love and forgiveness.
For the Sixth Sunday in the Season of Lent, also known as Palm or Passion Sunday, we will be reading most of the Passion Narrative from the Gospel of Luke 22:14 to 23:56. It is a long reading, but one that needs to be read as a whole. We will hear it read in two voices, interspersed with sung responses and time for meditation.
At home, you may want to read the other scriptures designated for this Sunday.
• Luke 19:28-40 (The Triumphal Entry)
• Psalm 118:1-2,19-29 (“Open the gates of the temple”)
• Isaiah 50:4-9 (The Suffering Servant)
• Psalm 31:9-16 (“Be gracious to me, O Lord”)
• Philippians 2:5-11 (The obedience of Christ)
The solemnity of this week’s service, which will include the Sacrament of Communion, helps prepare us for Good Friday, when we will reflect on “Seven Last Words from the Cross”. The Good Friday AM service (10:30 AM on April 15) will also be livestreamed.

SPIRIT WEST PRAYER CHAIN
Prayer is important. We know that people face challenges and difficulties and we cannot forget them. Our Prayer Chain continues to be active. If you have a prayer request, please send it to firstname.lastname@example.org. These requests will be shared regularly with the prayer chain and may form part of the Prayers of the People in our Sunday Worship.
Please remember to have people removed from the prayer chain if the prayers are no longer needed.
YOUR BOTTLES FOR THE CHURCH
You may have bottles piling up for recycling. You can bring them to the church (or you can call for pick up). If you want to bring your bottles (and any other recyclable beverage containers) in during our office hours and put them directly in the Bottle Shed (by the garage), give us a call, and we can have the shed open for you. All money raised from the return of bottles goes towards paying down the principal and interest on our mortgage.
