Maundy Thursday Service

by | Apr 9, 2020 | Past Events

One of the significant days in Holy Week is Maundy Thursday, where we commemorate the Last Supper that Jesus shared with His disciples.  As a community of faith, we will gather online once again on Thursday evening (scheduled for 7:00 p.m.), which will include communion and a brief Tenebrae service.  Because we will be sharing the sacrament, I want to invite you (as you watch the service) to have a small piece of bread and a small cup of juice (or water) available for the time when we will commune together.

Prior to communion, we will also sing together – “Let Us Break Bread Together on Our Knees” – and the lyrics are . . .

Let us break bread together on our knees;
Let us break bread together on our knees;
When I fall on my knees with my face to the rising sun,
O Lord, have mercy on me.

Let us drink wine together on our knees;
Let us drink wine together on our knees;
When I fall on my knees with my face to the rising sun,
O Lord, have mercy on me.

Let us praise God together on our knees;
Let us praise God together on our knees;
When I fall on my knees with my face to the rising sun,
O Lord, have mercy on me.

I will anticipate the joy of worshiping with you on Thursday evening.  Let me again express my deep appreciation to Carol Davis, Joan Lannock, and Hal Horton for taking the time to help us with the video for our services.

May you be forever embraced with God’s steadfast love.

Peace,
tom

Between a Religious Rock and an Imperial Hard Place – 10/18/20
