The doors of the temple were decorated with carvings of cherubim, palm trees, and open flowers.1 kings 6: 32
Today, the day before Palm Sunday, and in many churches people will be decorating the church with palm leaves and making palm crosses. In some countries without palms, the palm crosses have to be imported from elsewhere. Let us give thanks for the trees from which these branches came, and committee ourselves to the movement of tree growers. During the first year of COVID, Palm Sunday for many people took place during hard lock down, and a tradition was formed which has continued to this day, of placing a green branch of any kind on your front door. This is a beautiful symbol to show that you are also welcoming Jesus on this day.
