What is Maundy Thursday?
The meal is red wine and bread. Before you eat we recall that Jesus shared the same meal with his closest companions the day before he was arrested, two days before he died on a cross. On that day Jesus surprised his disciples before dinner by washing their feet in an act of perfect love as a reminder to them, and by extension us, that love demands time spent on our knees.
For Maundy Thursday we move our table from 701 Whaley to The Spot on Blanding. Back where it all began, this is where the church met when it first started out, and now it’s our office space--the program says, it’s where we dream. Coming into a place that’s been part of the rhythm of this community’s life for years provides a tangible link to the people who have come and gone as part of DOWNTOWN CHURCH, and reminds us that we’re part of a bigger community throughout time and space.
Drop-in for Maundy Thursday on April 13th between 5:30 – 8:30 p.m. at 1415 Blanding St, Suite 6.
