Palm Sunday last Sunday, represented the triumphal entry of Jesus into Jeruseleum which proved to be the final week of Jesus's earthly life. He rode on a donkey with crowds throwing coats and palm branches onto the path with shouts of "Hosanna to our King!". He was given a fine banquet the evening before and it was there Mary Magdalene anointed her Savior's feet with expensive oil and her tears showing her endearing love.

The Last Supper of Jesus is celebrated on Maudy Thursday where Jesus drank the wine and broke the bread in communion with His 12 disciples. Good Friday, the anguish in the Garden of Getheseme, the soldiers coming to take Jesus, the trial, the agony of the cross and his final words are recalled including, "It is finished. Father, into thy hands I commend my spirit!": and the earthquake. But God the Father isn't finished-on Easter sunrise, the Lord has risen! Come and celebrate a loving Saviour
