Sunday 9th April 2017 – Palm/ Passion Sunday

Son of David,

You are welcomed

with shouts of praise,

songs of wonder,

and garments strewn to prepare the path of entry

to the Holy City.

You are welcomed

for the stories You will tell

that create a world of compassion

and equilibrium

for all to find their place within.

You are welcomed

as the healing You offer

transforms the lives of those

who have been burdened and excluded.

You are welcomed,

and yet it is Your welcome

that has made place and space

so that are included

in the heavenly procession.

 

The path You have worn,

Christ of Crowds

is not an easy path to walk,

and at time the branches of temptation have wound themselves

around the plans and relationships

we meet.

In sorrow we call to mind the places we have tripped

and in our hurt

have scarred and marked

those who would walk with us.

 

Welcoming Spirit,

You call us back to the crowd,

and restore us for the task of serving in Your name.

Amen
