Reflections on Holy Week from Revd Elizabeth Clark, National Rural officer for the Methodist and United Reformed Churches, and Revd Claire Maxim, CEO of the Arthur Rank Centre.
Processions and walks of witness have always played a part in the life of God’s people. One example of this recorded in the Old Testament is when King David paraded into the city of Jerusalem with the Ark of the Covenant, playing joyful music on harps and cymbals (1 Chronicles 15). In the New Testament we’re told that Jesus rode on a donkey as he too processed, with his friends, into Jerusalem as the festival of Passover began.
