This evening begins the Three Day Feast which is at the heart and center of the Christian year. Today, on Maundy Thursday, we keep the first of the Three Days. We will not only hear the story but also participate in its enactment. We will confess our sins and receive God’s forgiveness. We will hear the good news proclaimed in word. We will follow our Lord’s commandment in washing one another’s feet. We will join as one in sharing a meal. We will strip our worship place of its clothing.We will sing. We will kneel. We will pray. We will move as a body. We will sit in silence. And in all that we do, God will do even more… God will make us ready for Good Friday.
