Palm Sunday

Today it is Palm Sunday. Yesterday I helped to make Easter crosses. These crosses represent the palm branches people waved with in the story about Jesus entry in Jerusalem. I helped making them in Heerenveen, and this morning I saw Easter crosses again in Amsterdam, carried around in procession in the church I went to, after having delivered my daughter at the Concertgebouw, where she had to sing for the second time in the Matthaus Passion. That is a nice characteristic of institutional religions. The rituals are essentially the same. In many, many services today children in Holland have carried these crosses through the building.   

Yesterday in Heerenveen


Today in Amsterdam, Dominicus
