Palm Sunday, Lutheran-Style

March 24, 2013 Leave a comment

It has been interesting participating in a church that has strong liturgy. After spending many years at a contemporary church with little beyond an annual celebration of Easter and Christmas, this is refreshing.

Our kids particularly enjoy interactive service elements. Jack yelled, “This is the best Sunday EVER” when we got to decorate the Chrismon tree during a Sunday service in late November, and today he helped lead the Palm Sunday processional. Sarah was so excited to find out that we would be allowed to take home “a SOUVENIR,” the palm branches in honor of this day.

I enjoyed listening to the choir sing the opening call to worship from the stairs leading to the balcony. Even the adults didn’t enter the sanctuary until after the kids began the processional. It was a wonderful and meaningful worship experience.
