to love one another as I have loved you.
Dear Church Family,
Last Sunday, we began Holy Week with Jesus’ triumphal entry into Jerusalem on Palm Sunday. We sang loud, shouted Hosanna, prayed, and celebrated together. We ourselves processed, taking steps alongside Jesus.
Now we enter the week framed by Palm Sunday and Easter. We mark the final events of Jesus’ life – his trial, death, and resurrection. We see brokenness in the world. We feel and share the sacrificial love of Christ that knows no measure.
This week, we remember. We will gather as a community to mark Maundy Thursday. Maundy, from the Latin mandatum novum, refers to the new commandment Jesus gives us to “love one another, just as I have loved you.” We remember Jesus washing his disciples' feet. We remember Jesus’ institution of the Lord’s Supper. We remember Jesus on the cross.
Please join us on Thursday at 6p for soup supper and 7p for worship in the Chapel. Childcare will be provided. Volunteer to help with the meal here.
