Opening Words for Palm Sunday

Today we begin the walk to Jerusalem
The holy week
The demand that we face the darkness, the broken path, the abuse of power.
Today we walk toward the dayspring breaking through,
The Easter day of joy.
So let us prepare the way,
Let us join together this morning in worship
To see what holiness resides within and about us
To welcome in the day

And make straight the path for the work of God.
Let us worship together.
