The events of this week make it the most significant week since the beginning of creation! An overstatement? Think about it.
At a point in time, God decided to create. His creation rebelled. He became incarnate, came to earth and brought redemption to the whole created order. The events of this week made that restoration possible. As we walk together in our observation and participation in the events of the Upper Room, the Last Supper, the foot washing, the prayer in the Garden of Gethsemane, the trials, the crucifixion, and the burial, we begin to gain a better grasp of the significance and power of this week that changed the course of human history including our own.
Attention to the events between Palm Sunday and Easter Sunday help put the whole picture into perspective. We hope to see you for the Maundy Thursday service (Part I) which begins in Lee Fellowship Hall at 6:30pm and then again on Good Friday, in the Sanctuary (Part II) with the Chancel Choir at 6:30pm. And then finally, Easter Sunday morning (Part III) at the Dr. Phillips Performing Arts Center at 9:00 or 11:00am.
