I spent some time a week or so ago browsing through the archives of one of my favorite blogs, Emily Polis Gibson’s Barnstorming blog. I found four of her posts that make wonderful Palm Sunday devotionals:
- 2010: Lenten Meditation: Spread Under Foot a reflection on a short commentary by an 8th century bishop
“So it is ourselves that we must spread under Christ’s feet, not coats or lifeless branches or shoots of trees, matter which wastes away and delights the eye only for a few brief hours. But we have clothed ourselves with Christ’s grace, with the whole Christ–’for as many of you as were baptized into Christ have clothed yourselves with Christ’—so let us spread ourselves like coats under his feet.” –8th century bishop Andrew of Crete
- 2012: Lenten Reflection–Crying Out Loud – An original poem, lamenting how often we fail to speak the name of Jesus
- 2013: Lenten Grace — Every Stone Shall Cry – A reflection inspired by a portion of Richard Wilbur’s “A Christmas Hymn”
- 2013: Lenten Grace — One Far Fierce Hour – A reflection inspired by GK Chesterton’s poem: “The Donkey”
Grab a cup of tea or coffee and go enjoy….!
