Palm Sunday

This woman was straightening out the crosses made from Palm leaves at the local Big Y grocery store. These are crosses that people put at gravesides rather than being used at church. At church this morning we waved our palms high as the children processed around the sanctuary. We also carried palms of other sorts. In the previous weeks I had asked the congregation to draw the outline of their hand on a piece of green construction paper and cut it out. Then, they were asked to write prayers on their 'palms'. I taped them all to three long tubes so the children carried the palm prayers as well and then we laid them at the altar.
