Worship and Special Services for Holy Week

This week as we journey through Holy Week, there are a number of worship services and opportunities to deepen your relationship with the Holy Spirit.
Palm and Passion Sunday – April 13th, 10:30 am

This morning’s blues includes Kirk Ready’s instrumental version of “Bring Him Home” from the musical, “Les Miserables.” This song is a plea to God from the character Valjean, who prays for the life of his beloved son-in-law Marius. 
Sufjan Stevens’ song, “Casimir Pulaski Day” is a song that questions God’s apparent callousness when a teenaged girl dies of cancer. For Marcel, the song evokes images and memories of losing his sister, Brandi MacDonald, who died of leukemia 20 years ago at the age of 14.
At the request of a member of the congregation, Brenda McLay sings “Cry If You Want To”—a song that affirms how a genuine relationship of love accepts pain and frustration, tears and bewilderment.
The Gospel story we receive today reminds us that God hears our pleas, and accepts our questions and disappointment; that Jesus joins us in that which disturbs our faith.
