Palm Sunday

Ok, I know it's a week late. And today is Good Friday instead of Palm Sunday. But I wanted to post this and today's the first chance I got.

Last Sunday the Minister at our Unitarial Universalist Church opened services with these words. Though Christianity doesn't really resonate with me, I was moved by these words and wanted to share.

Waving the Palms
by David O. Rankin

Palm Sunday is found:

whenever we are serving a noble and unpopular cause with selfless devotion, holding to the ideals of truth and justice;

whenever we are seeking to uplift the fallen, to comfort the brokenhearted, to strengthen and encourage the weak and hopeless;

whenever we are working bravely and persistently in the face of abuse and criticism to establish more equitable relations in the world;

whenever we are sacrificing our lives in behalf of what we believe to be the service of love for all humanity.

That is Palm Sunday!
