Do You Know What I Have Done?

Gathered Up in Jesus

Maundy Thursday, Year C

A recommitment to obeying that command is a part of why we gather. We remember Jesus, and we remember his words, and we once again pledge to learn to live by the command. In other words, on this night, we gather and offer ourselves to be gathered up in Jesus by choosing to live by the call to love.

The season of Lent this year centers on surrendering ourselves and allowing to be gathered up in Jesus as we journey through these forty days. It’s a time of introspection and reality checks, while we also hope for a future where we will be nurtured and held in the arms of Jesus. Jesus tells us how he wants to gather us up, like a mother hen gathers her brood. He wants us to claim him, to run to him, to be loved and cared for by him. But this is not to avoid the Lenten examination. Rather, it is to be able to endure it. Following are some ideas for music for this series to enhance and complement the readings. It’s a long worship series; and often it helps to have one or two theme songs that you can use in a variety of ways in worship to keep it interesting.
