Maundy Thursday

Thu

9 Apr

Today, Maundy Thursday, we cross the threshold into the The Great Three Days. Notice today’s picture, taken in Christ Church, Alfriston. A stained-glass image of Jesus holding the cup at the last supper is juxtaposed with the glass baptismal font in front. In Mark’s Gospel Jesus asks James and John, “Are you able to drink the cup that I drink, or be baptised with the baptism that I am baptised with?” Jesus’ question comes into sharp focus on this day.

 

With the busyness that comes as Holy Week progresses, it is possible to feel very crowded. We invite you to still yourself using an ancient practice called Centring Prayer. Click here to read a description of Centring Prayer.
