Many of you know that I regularly lead the Thursday evening More Than A Meal worship service. This week the Maundy Thursday service at 7:00 will follow the liturgy of the MTAM service. MTAM worship is contemplative and communal, weaving together song, silence, word, and congregational responses. As usual, I will share leadership of the service with MTAM congregation members and volunteers. I’ll offer a short meditation on Judas’s betrayal of Jesus. I hope you’ll join us for what promises to be a meaningful time of worship and reflection.
Reading Assignment for April 15
Next Sunday is Easter, so we’ll meet in the T.K. Young room for bread rather than gathering as the contrarian group that we are. The next time we’ll gather is April 15. In class I announced that we would skip chapter 10 and jump right to 11. What was I thinking?! Chapter 10 is filled with good stuff: “Be wise as serpents and innocent as doves;” “I have not come to bring peace, but a sword;” “Children will rise against parents and have them put to death.” Good stuff! How could we skip all of that? So, ignore my announcement. Let’s read chapter 10! It’ll make the “glutton and a drunkard” stuff in chapter 11 even sweeter.
