On March 28 we will host a Maundy Thursday service at 6:00pm. We will gather for a light meal and reflect together on Jesus' last night with his disciples, his institution of the Lord's Supper, and his model of servanthood.
Throughout Lent we've had several opportunities to reflect on the parable of the Prodigal Son. Our Ash Wednesday service was based on that parable, and during our Sunday worship service on March 10 we had three members of our congregation give a sermon-by-committee using this parable as the main text. So to bring this full circle, we will again draw on the parable of the Prodigal Son during Maundy Thursday. We will again use Henri Nouwen's reflections on the parable to guide us, paying particular attention to some of his reflections that expound upon the concept of servanthood, love, and grace.
