For two millenia, Christians have recognized the week before Easter as being the most significant week of the year. Some of the most memorable events in Jesus’ life occurred in his final days on earth, including the Triumphal Entry into Jerusalem, the Scourging of the Temple, the Last Supper, the washing of the disciples’ feet, and of course the crucifixion itself. This week we will walk with Jesus and his disciples along that familiar path through Jerusalem’s dark streets. Each evening we will remember the events that happened that day nearly two thousand years ago, beginning tonight with Jesus’ donkey ride into Jerusalem. If you’re interested in praying with us, I’ve attached our prayers for the week. You’ll notice that Friday is missing – that’s because we’ll have a special service at our house on Friday called a Tenebrae Service, which is a solemn, meditative reading of the Passion story. It’s at 7pm, so join us for that if you’re interested.

Lest I forget Gethsemane, lest I forget Thine agony;                                                                                        Lest I forget Thy love for me, lead me to Calvary.
