This Sunday we begin Easter week with Palm/Passion Sunday. This Easter will be unlike other Easters we have experienced at Covenant. As my clergy friend, Amelia Fulbrigt, said:
"We cannot force Easter to come. We cannot conjure it, or fake it, or perform it. All we can do is wait, and hope, and trust, and hold on to each other in the meantime. And when the time arrives, we can receive resurrection as the gift it always is---too long in coming, and yet just in time. We can also be assured that God has been with us the whole time, even in the dark recesses of what feels like a tomb, weeping with us and daily leading us closer to the Light."
And so we will begin our Easter vigil this Sunday and we will expect resurrection, new life, and hope even as we understand in new ways the pain of the tomb.
Scripture: Matthew 21:1-11; Matthew 27:11-54

This Sunday we have contributions from Covenant community members present and past, across a wide age range. We will have music within the service from both Sterling Alexander on clarinet, and Nora Bennett on piano. The prelude this week will be "Sarabande" from Partita No.1 by J.S. Bach, played by Karen Kline, pianist. Karen and her husband, Bill, have been attending Covenant since earlier this year. Karen has been Director of Music at several churches across her career. The prelude is played by Natalia Escobar Mejia, who attended Covenant and sang with the Covenant Singers for a while, until her job teaching piano required Sunday morning hours. She is playing "Adagio" from Sonata No 14 in C minor, by Wolfgang Amadeus Mozart.
