Maundy Thursday Service of Worship – Join Us on Zoom as We Journey Through Holy Week Together
As we move from Palm Sunday on March 28th toward Easter Sunday on April 4th, we do so mindful that the journey from Hosannas to Hallelujahs is not without pain and loss and heartbreak along the way. Holy Week carries us from the jubilation and the triumphant entry into Jerusalem that we will celebration this coming Sunday toward the Last Supper with Jesus and his disciples on Maundy Thursday; then into the betrayal in the Garden of Gethsemane; and into the pain and anguish of the Crucifixion on Good Friday; toward the silence of the tomb on Holy Saturday; and, finally, to the joy of the Resurrection on Easter morning.
You are invited to join us in marking this movement, the shift that happens in the journey from Sunday to Sunday, with a moving Maundy Thursday service on Thursday, April 1st, at 7 p.m. This service will take place together, in real time, on zoom (the link to join is below), and all are welcome. We will have the opportunity to participate together in a ritual of handwashing during the service, as well as in the sharing of Communion; those attending are invited to have a bowl of warm water, a towel, something for the bread, and something for cup all ready in their worship space as we gather.
The Maundy Thursday service is a brief but very moving service of Tenebrae, which comes from the Latin for “shadows.” It moves from light toward darkness, as together we hear words of the Passion Story, from the end of Jesus’ earthly life, and as we consider the shift from the light of Palm Sunday and the tenderness of the Last Supper shared together and the movement toward the darkness of the shadow of the cross.
