Holy Week

Home > Pastor's Blog > Holy Week

Something I treasure about our Lutheran theology is that it is a theology of the cross.  This makes it real in this sinful world.  Jesus suffered and died on the cross for us and for our salvation.  Holy Week is the time of the year that the cross is so predominantly brought to our attention because of the Passion of our Lord.  Though he paraded into Jerusalem on Palm Sunday and was hailed as a king, the tide quickly turned, and after preparing his disciples in that upper room on Maundy Thursday, Jesus was arrested, tried and nailed to a cross on Good Friday.  If they only knew then, like we know now, that Jesus truly was the King of all kings, and He was lifted up on the cross to draw all people to himself.  You are invited to walk with us through this Holy Week, and experience for yourself this saving history God had planned from the beginning of time.  In doing so, you will also be prepared to celebrate the glory of Christ’s resurrection on Easter Sunday!
