It has been described as THE WEEK THAT CHANGED THE WORLD! It began with what is called PALM SUNDAY, Jesus’s triumphal entry into Jerusalem. The grand conclusion of the week, in what is known to most as Holy Week, was the empty tomb and the resurrection of Jesus. That is what we celebrate on EASTER SUNDAY! In our study called PASSION we’ll be looking at three important symbols: THE TABLE, THE CROSS, AND THE TOWEL. Jesus often used stories (parables) and symbols to teach his disciples. These three things—the table, the cross, and the towel—are far more than symbols. They are anchor points for living out our faith as fully committed disciples. My prayer is that this study will show us how to live with others at the table, experience the power of the cross daily and serve others faithfully with the towel.
