The Scribe – April 2021

Palm Passion Sunday, March 28 – We hear of Jesus’ triumphant entry into Jerusalem. Later, the once joyful crowd turns angry and cries out for his death on a cross.

Maundy Thursday, April 1– Maundy is Latin for mandate or command. Jesus washes the disciples’ feet and gives a new command: to love one another as he loved us. Through his presence we become servants to each other. Our
worship ends with the dramatic stripping of the altar, preparing us for the stark reality of Good Friday.

Good Friday, April 2 – Called “good” because on this Friday the greatest gift was given: the life of our Lord for us. In the service of Tenebrae (darkness), readings are interspersed with music, so we hear the story of our Lord’s passion in the gradual darkening of the sanctuary.

Easter Sunday. Come celebrate our Lord’s Resurrection, April 4 – In the darkness of grief, Jesus’ followers come to the tomb only to find the stone rolled away and to hear the news: “He is Risen!” Jesus’ light scatters our darkness. His presence transforms life itself.

Joining Jesus on His Mission
It’s our theme for 2021.
You’ll hear it in the sermons.
You’ll hear it in adult classes.
Jesus is on the loose.
He’s in our neighborhoods.
He’s working in people who don’t even know him.
He’s working to give life and hope and healing.
It’s what he does. It’s his mission. And he invites us to join him on his mission.
Join me for our ongoing class “Joining Jesus on His Mission”, beginning Sunday, April 11 at 9:30 AM. It features a video by Greg Finke, the author of the book with the same title. Then on Tuesday, May 11, in the evening, we will meet with Greg Finke over a Zoom call. Mark your calendars!!
