Please join us as we gather in the Parish Hall for a simple potluck supper, a shared Eucharist and a time of song, instrumental music, and footwashing before we proceed upstairs for the stripping of the altar. Please see Lynley for the potluck sign-up.

Did you know...?

“Maundy” is a shortened form of mandatum (Latin), which means “command.” It was on the Thursday of Christ’s crucifixion that he told his disciples: “A new commandment I give to you, that you love one another: just as I have loved you, you also are to love one another” (John 13:34). Why footwashing? As noted in this commentary, "Foot washing was considered to be a task for slaves, who were at the bottom of the hierarchy, and it was unheard of for social superiors to wash the feet of social inferiors. So the tradition of mutual footwashing among the early Christians was profoundly counter-cultural." In this radical and shocking act, Jesus demonstrated to his disciples, and to us, what it is to be a person of God, serving others.
