Holy Week

Pastor Gates from First Lutheran and I met today to put together the service for Maundy Thursday.   It will be held at St. Andrews at 7 PM.  I am really looking forward to the service.  We have the washing of feet at this service.  Our church will be full and the singing will be glorious. 

I believe the term Maundy comes from the Latin "mandatum" which means mandate or commandment.  This references Jesus statement at the last supper when he said, "A new commandment I give to you, that you love one another as I have loved you."  It is such a powerful statement and really says it all.

Peace and love,
Deacon Fred
