Day 40 of Lent: Joy

Posted on Sat, Apr 20, 2019

Posted on Thu, Apr 18, 2019

For hundreds of years, the Christian church has set aside the Thursday before Easter as “Maundy Thursday," an opportunity to remember and reflect on what Jesus did on that Thursday before he died.  As we have the opportunity today in worship to receive The Lord’s Supper, in worship and private meditation, to contemplate what The Lord’s Supper means for us. We are part of a community, a community of Christians which goes back nearly 2,000 years.
