25th March 2018 – Palm Sunday B (COCU 24B)

(Mark 11:1-11)
Their cloaks on the ground,
calling and status laid down,
they welcomed Jesus.

Cloaks given in pledge,
a sign of one’s loyalty
to the one who comes

One’s cloak told a tale:
who you were and what you did,
your place in the crowd.

Those following cried
Hosanna! (or, Save us please!)
as Jesus rode on.

Shouldn’t we display
the same enthusiasm
in our following?
