The Americans defying Palm Sunday quarantines: "Satan's trying to keep us apart"
The Ohio megachurch down the road, Solid Rock, has charted a different course. Despite warnings from local and state officials, Solid Rock had been holding its 1,000-strong gatherings in person, and plans keep the church open on Palm Sunday, the beginning of Holy Week in Christian churches.
Millions of American Christians will observe Palm Sunday at home this weekend, as the vast majority of U.S. churches have moved services online to comply with stay-at-home rules.
But, like Solid Rock, pockets of churches from Florida to Texas and across to California are keeping their doors open and inviting worshipers to attend services this weekend....
Spurgeon; Let this be to you the mark of true Gospel preaching â€“ where Christ is everything, and the creature is nothing; where it is salvation all of grace, through the work of the Holy Spirit applying to the soul the precious blood of Jesus.
Thank You Lord for reasons in why to rejoice in You, as their is no King but Christ Alone amen!
Spurgeon; When you go through a trial, the sovereignty of God is the pillow upon which you lay your head.
Jerry Bridges; Trials always change our relationship with God. Either they drive us to Him, or they drive us away from Him. The extent of our fear of Him and our awareness of His love for us determine in which direction we will move.
BBC wrote: The Queen has promised the nation that better days are ahead, during a special address on Sunday. In a rare speech, she acknowledged the grief and financial hardships Britons are facing during the coronavirus pandemic. Echoing the words of the Vera Lynn wartime song, she said that â€śwe will meet againâ€ť.

Scripture certainly doesn't condemn it.the event is a fulfillment of prophecy, it is actually mentioned in the Bible. The Bible never condemns setting aside a day to remember great things that God has done. And actually encourages it.
Sorry,no Biblical warrant to have a "special day"in commemoration of anything except the gathering together for worship, teaching and preaching Jesus Christ. It is a Roman catholic tradition along with Xmass and Easter and all that,that entails.
