Lenten Journal: This Is Maundy Thursday

Tonight we'll gather for worship. We'll pray together, hear scripture together. I'll say a few things about the gospel, Jesus' "New" Commandment (it's hardly new, as Rolf Jacobson pointed out in this week's Sermon Brainwave), and the fact that this year we celebrate Maundy Thursday on the commemoration of Dietrich Bonhoeffer's death. When I'm done talking, we'll sit in silence while this song plays - and I hope people will be reminded again what it was Jesus was doing when he bathed the feet of his disciples. "Impoverished power," sings Michael Card - and may we all be called to the very same thing. A blessed Maundy Thursday to you all, friends.

Grace & peace,
