Holy Thursday/Maundy Thursday

Holy Week 2017 — Through Death to Life Series Overview

Holy Thursday/Maundy Thursday, Year A

Holy Thursday, or Maundy Thursday, marks the last conversation Jesus has with his disciples, a conversation grounded in what he calls a new commandment (mandatum in Latin, hence our English word “Maundy”). He illustrates and underscores the new commandment by washing the disciples’ feet: “Love one another as I have loved you.”

There is no sermon in this service. The word is proclaimed, and the people respond, sharing their commitment to follow what the Spirit has led them to do in response.
