Thursday, March 29th
Maundy Thursday is the Thursday before Easter, the day when Jesus celebrated his final Passover with His disciples. The Passover meal was when Jesus washed the feet of His disciples in an extraordinary display of humility. He then commanded them to do the same for each other.
Christ's "mandate" is commemorated on Maundy Thursday---"maundy" being a shortened form of mandatum (Latin), which means "command." It was on the Thursday of Christ's final week before being crucified and resurrected that He said these words to 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"
In contrast to this command to love one another is the reality that all His disciples abandoned Him is His time of need. During this service will we will celebrate Communion together and remember we too stand in need of His grace and forgiveness.
