Holy Week

I write this letter on Maundy Thursday, just a few hours before our service of worship at 7pm. I look forward to this service, knowing this to be a powerful and blessed time. Jesus told us to do this in remembrance of him, so we worship and remember. (See Bill Curlee's artwork for Maundy Thursday.)

Tomorrow, we gather for a noon Crosswalk service. This service begins at First Church. We have partnered with Wesley Memorial for several years in offering this service. I find this to be an inspired time in which through song, prayer, and scripture, we are drawn closer to Christ and experience anew his suffering love for us.
