Scripture includes: Matthew 21:1-11
Rev. Dr. Libby Grammer will preach a sermon entitled, “Great Expectations”
On Palm Sunday we cheer the Messiah with the crowds: “Hosanna, Save Us!” We hear their cries for a savior – we feel their need for deliverance from oppression. Our expectations, with them, are that this One is the One. But how does our shared cry of “Hosanna, Save Us” help us see the rest of the story? How does Jesus fulfill our expectations – or not?
Today is Palm Sunday, marking the beginning of Holy Week in the Christian calendar. These are some of the most significant days of the church year. The blessing and procession of palms reenacts the triumphal entry of Jesus into Jerusalem. During Holy Week, we focus intensely on Jesus’ last days, his execution, his burial, and finally, with Easter Sunday, his resurrection.
