This week our Ministerial Alliance holds noon time services that includes a light lunch, inviting people to prepare for Easter in the midst of their daily lives. Every day we hear from a different preacher, in a different church (not the preacher’s), are inspired by different music and are served an interesting variety of simple lunches. It is church as I expect we should be a multitude of people with widely varying religious beliefs joining to hear differing perspectives, everyone respecting the other.
Today is Maunday Thursday and if your observation is focused on Jesus establishing Eucharist, or Foot washing there is an element of the unexpected, a surprise that begins to reshape the disciples understanding of who Jesus is; and it is uncomfortable.
May your day be blessed by those who experience faith is different than you, so that your faith may be unexpectedly expanded, especially if it begins in divine discomfort.
