Maundy Thursday

1. The last supper.
2. Communion.
3. Washing the disciples' feet.

We had an amazing Maundy Thursday service at church last night. This commemorates Jesus' last meal with his disciples before he died on the cross. So we shared a meal with friends, and we served each other communion at our tables in honor of Christ serving his disciples. Then we had an opportunity to wash each other's feet to show respect and service. It was very touching and moving seeing the people who washed someone else's feet. Matt and I washed each other's feet and our son's as well to shown our love and devotion for one another.

If you'd like to read more about this holy day, you can see some information here.

We have a group thing on Thursdays so we didn't attend the service, but this was interesting! I actually had no idea what went on for Maundy Thursday.

That sounds like such a neat service. We just have the traditional communion service. I'm going to tell my dad (also my pastor) about this!
