Thursday Thinking and Inking - Palm

All Aboard the Meme Express – Thursday, March 25, 2010

This Sunday, Christians will celebrate Palm Sunday. Easter, the highest Christian holy day, is one week off.

Palm Sunday marks the beginning of Holy Week on the ecclesiastical calendar. On Palm Sunday, Christians recount the triumphant entry of Jesus into Jerusalem, when the Lord rode a borrowed donkey through the streets. As He passed, the crowd shouted, "Hosanna" and waved palm branches.

Less than a week later, having returned the borrowed donkey, Jesus' followers would place His body in a borrowed tomb. He needed the donkey for a few hours, and He needed the tomb for just a few days.

On Sunday, children in Sunday Schools all over the world will receive palm fronds and palm leaves to celebrate Palm Sunday. Some folks may pick up the Palm Pilots to record the occasion as well.

To mark this moment, here is today’s thought-provoking quotation for Thursday Thinking and Inking at Meme Express.

“To see the world in a grain of sand,
and to see heaven in a wild flower,
hold infinity in the palm of your hands,
and eternity in an hour.
William Blake
British Poet and Painter
