Yesterday, Palm Sunday, marked the beginning of Holy Week. Now we walk through a season of sorrow, hope, and great joy.
Holy Week is a time to remember Jesus’ amazing victory over death. It’s a distinct and important time for Christians to reflect on and celebrate the resurrection of Jesus: a reminder of the greatest sacrifice and the most amazing redemption.
