Where do our Palm Sunday palm crosses come from?

Where do our Palm Sunday palm crosses come from?

One source for Palm Sunday palm crosses, especially in England, is African Palms. The organization provides work for Tanzanian farmers, while the foundation also works on projects such as bringing water to the villages where the crosses are made. The Church of England did a short interview with Rev. Alan Talbot, who founded the organization.

I don’t really understand the ‘palm cross’ thing. Can’t find mention of them in any of the four Gospels. But if it helps out folks in a former British mandate, I guess it’s OK, if it’s not just more colonial style exploitation.

The Episcopal Café seeks to be an independent voice, reporting and reflecting on the Episcopal Church and the Anglican tradition.  The Café is not a platform of advocacy, but it does aim to tell the story of the church from the perspective of Progressive Christianity.  Our collective sympathy, as the Café, lies with the project of widening the circle of inclusion within the church and empowering all the baptized for the role to which they have been called as followers of Christ.

The opinions expressed at the Café are those of individual contributors, and, unless otherwise noted, should not be interpreted as official statements of a parish, diocese or other organization. The art and articles that appear here remain the property of their creators.
