Holy Week

We are coming to the end of Holy Week. On Thursday evening we held the Maundy Thursday Communion. Not only did we remember how Christ instituted the Lord’s Supper, when he partook of the last Passover meal on earth, but also his New Commandment: “a New Commandment I give you, that you love one another as I have loved you.” And then Jesus washed the disciples’ feet – in an act of humility. In the service, we echoed that as Steve Bailey, who is leading it, washed the feet of some members of the congregation. After that, remembering Jesus’ agony in the garden, we removed all decoration from the church – and left in quietness and darkness.
