A Palm Sunday tradition


As the practice on Palm Sunday at Greenwood Community Church, Presbyterian, a donkey led the procession of parishioners around the church, ending up at the front steps where Pastor Stephen Clark led the congregation in song and the waving of palms to exclamations of “hosanna.” The donkey, named Hannah, belongs to Cindy Mills, who has a farm in South County, and is no ordinary donkey. As Pastor Clark explained, Hannah is a Jerusalem donkey, so named because of the marking that runs down its back and over its back to its forelegs to form a cross. It is said to be the same kind of donkey Jesus rode into Jerusalem on Good Friday.
