On Palm Sunday, March 24th, during the 6:00pm English service at Lake Church Borelasgamuwa, Rev. Conrad De Silva delivered a thought-provoking sermon titled “Why Palms?” The sermon delved into the significance behind the use of palm branches in the biblical narrative, particularly referencing John 12:13. Rev. De Silva likely explored the cultural and symbolic meanings associated with palms in ancient times and how they were utilized during Jesus Christ’s triumphal entry into Jerusalem. Through insightful interpretation, the congregation was led to contemplate the deeper spiritual lessons conveyed by this act, such as the acknowledgment of Jesus as the long-awaited Messiah and King. The sermon would have served to deepen the congregation’s understanding of the rich symbolism embedded within Palm Sunday traditions and inspire reflection on their own faith journey in light of Christ’s triumphant entry into their lives.
