Holy Week is the week when Christ-followers around the world remember and reflect upon the events surrounding Jesus’ death and resurrection. It is a week that begins in praise, travels through suffering, agony and despair and culminates in the ultimate celebration of the joyous hope that we have in Christ. The first Holy Week was the greatest week in human history and we are invited each year to enter into it afresh and anew. This week we will look at the life, death and resurrection of Jesus and why each of these elements of Jesus’ life our essential our faith and to our lives today.
Today we read the story of Palm Sunday, Mark chapter 11.
