Lenten-Background.002 Take the ancient journey of the last days of Jesus.  This  meal and service will combine traditions of Holy Thursday and Good Friday, Maunday Thursday and Tenebrae.  Through readings and music, on this evening, we will join Jesus in those last days for a meal with his followers gathered around a table.  We join him in a garden wondering if we can stay awake and abide with him.  We will join him at his trial and witness the cross. It is a powerful service of fellowship, memory, and prayer.   The meal and service begins Thursday , April17, at 6:30 pm, in the community hall.  All are welcome!
