We are coming to the conclusion of the Lenten season as we enter Holy Week and move into the celebration time of Easter. Being Easter people we may want to fast forward from the pomp and circumstance of Palm Sunday and move right into Easter. In doing this, it would be like only eating dessert and passing on the nourishment of the main course. There are at least two key events that are critical components to our Christian faith, the Last Supper and Jesus’ suffering on the cross. When we participate in Holy Communion we are remembering the last supper Jesus had with his disciples and the suffering he experienced on the cross. God’s presence is made known to us by His grace offered unconditionally to us. It is important to allow our kids to experience the happenings in worship this week from the Parade of Palms on Palm Sunday to our Maundy Thursday service. Let's encourage our children to ask questions regarding the events of the Passion for this all part of the development of their faith. .
