Together for Thursday

April 01, 2021  •  1 Comment

Maundy Thursday, another significant gathering time for the Christian community, arising out of the Passover meal. The people at table together. Jesus's prediction of suffering. He knelt and washed their feet as an act of service and compassion. A neighborly act for dusty feet two thousand years ago, but striking that the host would cleanse and soothe the feet of travelers, a task usually performed by servants. We still long to gather at table and compassionately care for the guests beside us. We hold hands, we laugh, we cry, we note those who are no longer with us, we pause to cherish this moment for it may never be the same again. We eat the bread, we drink the cup. We remember. And join the psalmist: "Thank God because he's good, because his love never quits. Tell the world..."The Message, Psalm 118.

“Because his love never quits.” That’s the message. It’s new every morning.... It brings to mind a song. Thanks John.
