Celebrate Jesus’ entrance into Jerusalem and the start of Holy Week with Old South Church’s exuberant parade and the waving of palms. This year, Palm Sunday falls a day before the Boston Marathon. Hundreds of marathoners will join us for worship as we ask God to bless them, and pray that they may “run and not grow weary, walk and not faint” (in the words of the prophet Isaiah).
