Closing Litany for Palm Sunday

Here’s a closing litany for Palm/Passion Sunday.  It was written by Rev Gord and posted on Worship Offerings.

Sending Litany for Palm Sunday
(inspired by Matthew 21:1-11, Mark 11:1-11; Luke 19:29-40; John 12:12-19)

We have gathered with the crowds crying Hosanna!
Because even if we were silent
the stones themselves would have called out.
We have shared the hope for a world about to be changed,
and then it changed.
We have walked with another crowd.
One that called words of scorn and condemnation.
And now we follow the crowd as it leads out to the cross,
and yet even as the world grows dark,
we cannot lose hope.
Because God is with us.
God will be with us.
Whatever happens.
We are not alone.
And so we watch the crowd and we follow...
