If Jesus bothers to time-travel 2,000+ years from Israel to Long Island to visit (among other places) the Congregational Church of Patchogue; I have a feeling he would welcome something more than us waving palm branches at him. Tomorrow, April 14th, is Palm Sunday. But there are no palm trees growing on Long Island. We had to import them from Florida. Many of our church kids have never seen a palm branch actually connected to a palm tree. We want to honor and welcome him with local fare that people can better relate to. Therefore, we will make him a root beer float. It might (who knows?) be his first one, so we are going to serve it in a frosted glass with lots of froth on the top. Keeping it real and having fun on Long Island. Peace Whenever Possible, Pastor Dwight.
