Happy Palm Sunday!

We did the Stations of the Cross this morning in our Religious Education classes, combining the first and fourth grades. Our walk/prayer had many "technical" errors (copying problems, pronunciation and enunciation, then the practicing choir got too loud for us to continue) so we relied on the grace of the Holy Spirit to communicate the spirit of the week. The kids were patient and good, K did a great job reading the name of each Station, and Charles adjusted plans as needed to best reach the kids. At the end, we made the point that it may have seemed long and even perhaps hard to understand, but how much longer and more difficult it must have seemed to Christ!

Jonathan, who is our religious education director, posted this "G" version of "The Passion of the Christ" trailer on his blog, Echoing Hope. "G" it may be, but it still made we weep. A good start to Holy Week.
