Holy Week


“The earth is the Lord’s and all that is in it, the world and those who live in it.”

(Psalm 24:1)

“You shall love the Lord your God with all your heart, and with all your soul, and with all your might.” (Deuteronomy 6:5 and Matthew 22:37)


We are God’s and God is ours. When we take away all the noise and clutter in our lives and in our minds, we may see and hear God more clearly. Now add God’s word and one another and God’s presence becomes even more prominent.


The week from Palm Sunday through Easter Sunday is called Holy Week. “Holy” means “set apart.” Going back to childhood, I’ve always thought of Holy Week as being a week that is set apart for a lot of church services. And a lot of church services for a kid is a LONG week!


This year is no exception. Alpine will be gathering on Palm Sunday at 8 and 10 a.m., on Maundy Thursday at 11 a.m. and 7 p.m., on Good Friday at 7 p.m., and on Easter Sunday at 8 and 10 a.m. Weeklong passes are available for the same price as individual day or evening tickets, paid in full by Jesus.


I invite you to also think of “holy” as applied to us, that this be a week in which we live as having been set apart by God and claimed as his own. In this sense, every week is a holy week, and every day a holiday (holy day). This is in no way limited to gathering in worship, but it includes it.


I look forward to celebrating this particular Holy Week, March 24-31, 2024 as people of God set apart and gathered together in worship.


Grace and Peace,


Pastor Don Wink
