Holy Thursday/Maundy Thursday, April 5, 2012:
This was the day of preparation for the Passover. It was the first day of the feast of Unleavened Bread. This was the day that Jesus went to the Garden of Gethsemane to pray, seeking strength in prayer and yielding himself to the will of God.
Holy Communion will be served at 6:30 p.m. This is a Night in White as we celebrate this most Holy Meal together. It was in the garden that the betrayer Judas came, using a time-honored custom to greet a friend, to betray him. For thirty pieces of silver, the price of a slave, Jesus was betrayed, arrested, and taken to the High Priest for trial. The fifth day ended. GREAT DAY IS COMING!
