Blessed Is the One

If Jesus
Was entering
Nashville today
Would the crowds wave
Dogwood branches?

A very large crowd spread their cloaks on the road, and others cut branches from the trees and spread them on the road. The crowds that went ahead of him and that followed were shouting, “Hosanna to the Son of David! Blessed is the one who comes in the name of the Lord! Hosanna in the highest heaven!”
– Matthew 21:8-9

  1. Wouldn’t that be lovely! Yesterday, our congregation followed a little donkey from the parking lot to the church doors while a minister led us in a reading. We were given palm branches to wave as we proclaimed “Hosanna, blessed is He who comes in the name of the Lord.” This Palm Sunday ritual has become a highlight for the congregation.
