Maundy Thursday

 

7:00pm Worship with Holy Communion, and including individual absolution

 

 

INTRODUCTION

 

With nightfall our Lenten observance comes to an end, and we gather with Christians around the world to celebrate the Three Days of Jesus' death and resurrection. At the heart of the Maundy Thursday liturgy is Jesus' commandment to love one another. As Jesus washed the feet of his disciples, we are called to follow his example as we humbly care for one another, especially the poor and the unloved. At the Lord's table we remember Jesus' sacrifice of his life, even as we are called to offer ourselves in love for the life of the world.

 

 

Readings

 

Exodus 12:1–4[5–10] 11–14

Psalm 116:1–2, 12–19:  I will lift the cup of salvation and call on the name of the LORD. (Ps. 116:13)

1 Corinthians 11:23–26

John 13:1–17, 31b–35

 

Prayer of the Day

 

Holy God, source of all love,

on the night of his betrayal, Jesus gave us a new commandment,

to love one another as he loves us.

Write this commandment in our hearts,

and give us the will to serve others as he was the servant of all,

your Son, Jesus Christ, our Savior and Lord,

who lives and reigns with you and the Holy Spirit,

one God, now and forever.

Good Friday

 

7:00pm
An act of worship with readings, meditation and music reflecting on the meaning of the death of Christ for us

 

 

Christ as Passover Lamb
Exodus 12:21-23 - Passover
Exodus 14:19-25 - Exodus
Hebrews 10:11-18 - Sacrifice


Christ as Righteous Servant
Isaiah 43:1-4 A people redeemed
Isaiah 44:1-4 A people blessed
Isaiah 53:4-6, 10-12 A people healed

Christ Crucified
Philippians 2:7-9 Obedient
John 19:17  Completed

The last words of Jesus that his work is completed, are our last word also.  We leave in silence, knowing that our salvation is completed in Christ, and requires only our personal response to God’s great gift.
