Today, Maundy Thursday, we cross the threshold into the The Great Three Days. Notice the picture on the tile text. It is taken in Christ Church, Alfriston. Juxtaposed is a stained glass image of Jesus holding the cup at the last supper, 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 baptized with the baptism that I am baptized 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.
