Well, this year our procession with palms was also our procession into a new sanctuary for the Church of the Redeemer. With gratitude to God and love for one another, we dedicated our use of this space for worship of the Lord. This was our prayer as we entered:
O GOD who did on this day bless the holy city by the coming of
your Son Jesus, and who does in him prepare us to be a New
Jerusalem with this Lamb as our Light, walk with us, we pray, into
this new house of worship and prepare for yourself a people fit for
your praise and honor; that when all the world does see him at his
coming, no rock need cry out for us his most worthy praise, who
lives and reigns with you and the Holy Spirit, now and for ever.
