Celebrated Palm Sunday today at United Church of Chapel Hill. Got my obligatory palm frond (check), which makes it Palm Sunday for me. Some churches make crosses out of the palm fronds, and others simply give out a palm frond.
What was a reminder was the Scripture lesson from 1 Sam. 17:17, regarding King David's slaughter of people living with a visual impairment/blind. It fit well with the incredible pairing up with the Blind Bartimaeus story from Mark's Gospel (Mark 10). While David slaughtered those who are blind, Jesus welcomes the blind into Jerusalem as he went riding a donkey.
Two sons of God, with a different reaction to people with disabilities.
Hosanna loud hosannas!
