Palm Sunday—Planting the Garden

The Sunday is Palm Sunday and marks the beginning of Holy Week through Jesus’ triumphant entry into Jerusalem.  We will begin our 6:30pm service outside in the front yard and process into our sacred space together. 

After our Palm Sunday Liturgy and dinner we will be turning two of the front flower beds into vegetable beds (and no, we are not killing any flowers, but we did move a few).  We won’t exactly become locavores overnight, but the squash and tomatoes will certainly help feed us during our Sunday meals in the fall.  The leftover vegetables will be taken to Trinity Central West End’s food pantry to be distributed. ...

Holy Week Schedule

Holy Week Schedule
Sometime Tuesday we will be painting a banner under the walkway (time tba).  If you are an artist or a good painter or even just want to hang out while other people paint, please stop by and see us!  The banner is to mark our Holy Week schedule and to invite others to join us.

We celebrate Tenebrae on Wednesday to mark the entry into the Triduum.  The service provides an extended meditation upon, and a prelude to, the events in Jesus’ life between the Last Supper and the Resurrection.

Spring at the Rockwell House

Believe it or not, Palm Sunday is only in 8 days!  While Lent is usually long and tired, this year it seems that Lent has been short and surprisingly bright.  It may be due to the distracting and sometimes moody spring that we've been having in St. Louis.  Beautiful days of bright warm skies followed by 4 inches of snow in late March!  By the way, where did March go?  And how did Lent go by so fast?  It never goes by quickly...
 
To wrap up our Lenten series "Spiritually Material" (after our Sunday evening worship during dinner), this Sunday we will be reading snippets from “Revolve,” a version of the bible that you may not be familiar with (pictured).  It is written and marketed for teenage girls and it's full of goodies like dating quizzes and questionnaires,...
