As we journey through Holy Week, let us enter into the events we commemorate as a way to encounter God anew.
Holy Week is about beginnings as well as endings.
We grieve at the fire that burned down the spire of Notre Dame in Paris. We struggle with our helplessness with all that is going on in the world, and much that is going on around us. And it is in the devastation and desolation, we learn to rely more on God, trusting in God’s faithfulness.
Join us on Maundy Thursday, and remember Jesus’ last meal with His disciples, Jesus washing the disciples feet, and the commandment He gave to them, and us – “Love each other as I have loved you.” (John 13:34, John 15:12)
On Good Friday, join us and meditate on how Jesus loved us through laying down His life – ” Love each other in the same way I have loved you. There is no greater love than to lay down one’s life for one’s friends.” (John 15:12-13)
And come celebrate with us on Easter Sunday, as we celebrate Christ’s Resurrection. May we always remember to have faith and hope – that there is a power greater than death and that power is love.
