Holy Week: Day 5: The Last Supper

Ah, Maundy Thursday, the day set aside to remember and reflect the Last Supper. I can’t help but think….What was going on in Jesus’ mind?  These thirteen men have just spent the last three years ministering side by side.  The stories, the laughter, and maybe even tears these men must have shared.  Now, not only is that coming to an end, but one will betray … Continue reading Holy Week: Day 5: The Last Supper

Holy Week: Day 6 (It’s Friday….but Sunday’s Coming)

I absolutely love this song. This morning I am putting everything aside and making a conscience effort to remember what happened today all those years ago; the sacrifice that was made and the price that was paid.
