Happy Easter - Jesus is Risen

Jesus is Risen!  "I know that my redeemer liveth." Job 19:25
Collect of the Day: Lord of Life and power, through the mighty resurrection of your Son, you have overcome  the old order of sin and death and have made all things new in him.  May we, being dead to sin and alive to you in Jesus Christ, reign with him in glory, who with you and the Holy Spirit is alive, one God, now and forever. Amen.

Palm Sunday

     We celebrated Palm Sunday this week with folded palms being given to parishioners during Sunday morning service.

Palm Sunday Prayer
     Christ Jesus, we commend ourselves to your care this day.  Inspire in us the trust that nothing in life or death can separate us from you.  Amen.
     Lay Reader Jan Cox told us the story, and showed us photos, of a miniature donkey she once owned and about the legend of the cross which marks its' back.  When Jesus came in to the city of Jerusalem he rode in on the back of a small donkey.  In thanks, he blessed the donkey by making the sign of the cross across its' back.  To this day these donkeys still bear the cross on their back.
     Here's a little video someone posted online...
