Holy Monday Devotional
Good evening Friends,
Welcome to Holy Monday 2021!
The week between Palm Sunday and the Resurrection is the most detailed, event-filled sequence in all of the Gospels. Over the course of just a few days, a whole host of characters and factions appear on the stage, each playing a part in the drama of Jesus’ trial and crucifixion. Besides Jesus himself, there are the frightened and confused disciples; the scheming religious rulers; the fickle Jerusalem crowds; the aloof but brutal Romans; and more.
This week, we’ll be looking at the biblical events that took place during the week leading up to Jesus’ crucifixion on Good Friday.
So what happened on Holy Monday? According to the gospels, on this day Jesus cursed the fig tree (Matthew 21:18–22, Mark 11:20–26), cleansed the temple, and responded to the questioning of his authority (Matthew 21:23–27).
Come, let us worship together on this Holy Monday.
Please log on to the 5th Ave. UMC website, faumc.org, to watch tonight’s worship service.
We will send out the bulletin and the recorded worship service each day.
Let us know if you have any difficulties with the on-line bulletin or worship service.
Blessings and Peace,
Rev. Clarissa Martinelli
Pastor, Fifth Avenue UMC
