We will gather this week at 7PM for the Maundy Thursday Service; reading from the Gospel of John, with a time of prayer and celebration of the Lord’s Supper. Maundy is derived from the first antiphon (a short piece of biblical text that is sung before or after a psalm verse in a church service) of the ceremony of the washing of feet based on John 13:34 – A new commandment I give to you, that you love one another: just as I have loved you, you also are to love one another.
We will again gather at 7 on Good Friday to remember the great suffering of our Savior lest we forget and grow weak in our faith. This service will be a reading of Old Testament prophecy of Christ’s suffering and New Testament fulfillment with a hymn.
There will be no sunrise service this year. We will meet at our regular time for a joyful remembrance of the Resurrection of Jesus in anticipation of our own, and the blessed life to come. Please read Mark 16:1-8 and 1 Corinthians 15:1-25. May we be as Deitrich Bonhoeffer said before his death: “This is the end for me — the beginning of life.”
See you Thursday,
