Thank you to all who joined the LAF hosted Maundy Thursday bible study on Zoom. This year is a bit different. Our passion services normally tend to follow the Synoptic Gospels (Matthew, Mark or Luke). This year we have been following John. John’s difference on Maundy Thurday was that the mandate was not “do this in remembrance of me” but “a new commandment I give to you, love one another just as I have loved you.” One of the other differences between the Synoptics and John tends to be that Jesus in John is never less than the divine Word. If in the synoptics we experience the human Jesus and right along with the disciples come to realize that this one is more than that, in John Jesus is always God (In the beginning was the Word, and the Word was with God, and the Word was God.) Reading the Passion from John on Good Friday hits all the same events, but the focus on the divine Word puts the Good in Good Friday. This is Jesus overcoming the world. The world, the darkness does not understand this, but this is the light shining. It streams forth from Calvary. Come join us. The online info to do so is below.
Good Friday @ 7PM – Online and at church
I’m not doubling the service times. Based on historic patterns I don’t think that will be necessary. We are making some appropriate changes to accomodate the online folks. This is one service I think should translate rather well. (Replaning Holy Week on the fly has been an experience.) You might want to stream this from a dim room for the full effect.
Easter @ 9AM and 11AM – Online and at church (just as per the previous two Sunday’s)
Here is the link and the info to join the zoom space online.
