Palm Sunday Service- 25th March 2018


Mark 11:1-11

In this morning’s Palm Sunday Service Rev. Bluett spoke about Jesus’s entry into Jerusalem. He contrasted the manner of his entry with that of the other procession which was happening at the same time, highlighting the contrast between the peaceful reign of God in Jesus and the alternative reign of rulers who used war and violence to subdue the masses, in the shape of the Roman Empire.
