Holy Week is a journey, of both past and present. It beckons us to go back in time, experiencing what took place over 2000 years ago, as Jesus lived His last days, His death and His resurrection. It is also a journey fully in the present, providing space and time to reflect and receive what these events mean for us today. In this journey, we explore the deeper meaning of our baptism. In this journey, we reflect more fully upon the implications of the Last Supper. In this journey, we are confronted with the cruel savagery of the cross. As we walk with our Lord through these rich days, he leads us, through His Spirit, to encounter the harsh reality of our sin and rebellion, the extravagance of His love and sacrifice, and the glory and promise of His resurrection. We are taken to a place beyond tears, to the place of redemption, forgiveness, and expectation. And we find ourselves again at the empty tomb, assured of resurrected of life in Him, gratefully proclaiming, “Alleluia! Christ is risen! The Lord is risen indeed! Alleluia!”
Come join with us on the journey!
