Palm/Passion Sunday 2020

Divine Service, Setting IV (LSB) with the Procession of Palms

For those of you anxiously awaiting the publication of the video, note that I am trying to balance providing you the content you desire against the constraints of our system.

Why have I edited out the Words of Institution? I have intentionally omitted the Words of our Lord from the Sacrament. I’ve done this because the Sacrament cannot be celebrated via the Internet. The Lord’s Supper was instituted by an incarnate Christ in the presence of His disciples. Paul instructs us to recognize the body of Christ in the Supper (1 Co. 11:29) and this cannot be done if I can’t see your face and you cannot see the faces of those with whom you commune.
