Maundy Thursday

Maundy Thursday, March 24, 2016 the Abbey Community participated in our very first Seder meal together.  Passover is a symbol for Christians around the world of Jesus becoming the Paschal Lamb, slain for us.  While Jesus partook of Passover, 2 milennia ago, he not only prepared for his death but he prepared his followers for life.  He got down on his knees with basin and towel and washed his disciples’ feet.  To be a follower of Jesus is to become a servant to our King, Jesus and therefore a servant to all those in his kingdom.  So, to symbolize our surrender to this identity we spent time, after our Seder meal, in the literal and tangible work of basin and towel by washing the feet of one another while praying for them.
