Palm Sunday

I grew in a Southern Baptist affiliated church in the 1990’s, which essentially means that I had no connection to the historic, liturgical expressions of faith. As I’ve migrated in and out of Christianity through my twenties, I’ve found that I desire some connection to that historical, liturgical framework. I think it’s incredibly important to remember, regardless of what your religious expression is, that you are one among many voices; present, past and future. So, in that spirit, here is the ending prayer from the Palm Sunday reading from the Book of Common Prayer:

Almighty and everliving God, in your tender love for the
human race you sent your Son our Savior Jesus Christ to take
upon him our nature, and to suffer death upon the cross,
giving us the example of his great humility: Mercifully grant
that we may walk in the way of his suffering, and also share
in his resurrection; through Jesus Christ our Lord, who lives
and reigns with you and the Holy Spirit, one God, for ever
and ever. Amen.
