One change this year, for our “regulars” will be a time of washing of hands at home to symbolize the serving nature of caring for others through washing our hands.

Get creative with the message at home. Create symbols that will inspire you during your tough days. Create symbols that will inspire you to live out God’s love.

 
“I give you a new commandment: Love each other.”

Maundy Thursday is an alternate name for Holy Thursday, the first of the three days of solemn remembrance of the events leading up to and immediately following the crucifixion of Jesus. The English word “Maundy” comes from the Latin mandatum, which means “commandment.” As recorded in John’s gospel, on his last night before his betrayal and arrest, Jesus washed the feet of his disciples and then gave them a new commandment to love one another as he had loved them.
