Maundy Thursday, April 18th, 7pm
The Living Last Supper will be presented by the twelve disciples of Jesus. Set in pose created by da Vinci’s “The Last Supper”, each disciple comes alive and presents his perspective after Jesus says, “one of you will betray me”.
On this night we begin the Three Days during which we participate once again in the saving power of Jesus’ passing over from death into life. The Maundy Thursday service concludes with the words of Jesus’ new commandment (madatum, from which Maundy comes) to love one another. On this night in which Jesus was handed over to death we also gather around the Lord’s supper. At the service conclusion, the altar area is stripped of furnishings as a sign of Jesus’ abandonment.
