GRACEnotes, April 16
This is the holiest week of the Christian calendar. Here we remember Jesus' profound love rooted in humble service, the depth of God's identification with humanity through death, and the astonishing news that what seems darkest is not defeat and what seems tragic leads to hope. Through foot washing, adoration of the cross, and shouts of "He is risen!" we live that ancient story as if we were present when it first unfolded. Thanks to God's grace, it's a story that gives us life and profound joy. And so I invite you make this journey this week as if it's brand new. Hear God's extravagant "yes." And with angels, saints, and the heavenly chorus, praise God from whom all blessings flow.
Specifically, you're invited to the following observances...
Maundy Thursday, April 17 - a simple supper at Luther House, 6-6:45 p.m., followed by Maundy Thursday worship at Grace Lutheran, 7-8:00 p.m.
Good Friday, April 18 - Luther House is closed today but the Good Friday service at Grace is from 7-8:00 p.m. It's a somber service of prayer, meditation, and adoration of the cross.
Easter Vigil, Saturday, April 19 - this service dramatically traces the ways of God's saving acts through history. It starts at 8:00 p.m. at Grace.
Easter Sunday, April 20 - "Christ is Risen" services, 8:30 or 11:00 a.m., with Easter Breakfast from 9:30-10:45. Join me and others from Luther House in the church fellowship hall for breakfast starting at 9:30. Luther House pays.
And now, a prayer to guide our week...
To you, O Lord, I lift up my soul.
Make me to know your ways, O Lord;
teach me your paths.
Lead me in your truth, and teach me,
for you are the God of my salvation;
for you I wait all day long. (Psalm 25:1, 4-5)
