Call to Holy Week 2023

posted in: Worship | 0

Dear friends,

We come now to the time in the church’s year – eight great days – when the story of God’s love for humanity is played out with power and drama. From the ominous celebration on Palm Sunday, to the command to love on Maundy Thursday, the solemn quiet of Good Friday, and the surprise and joy of Easter, the foundations of our faith are laid. In the words and actions of worship, we bring those great events into our present reality. The stories inspire our minds and hearts; the palms procession and foot washing and kneeling at the cross put us – body and soul – into the most important moments of our faith.

I urge you to join us, and to bring family and friends, for the worship of Holy Week and Easter. Let it be a challenge to yourself to attend at least three services between Palm Sunday and Good Friday. You will be fed by what you hear and see!

The experience of worship is most powerful if you can be “in the room,” but all services will also be live streamed on YouTube. In whatever way you join us, I hope that this Holy Week will be a blessing to you.

Peace, Howie+
The Reverend Dr. Howell C. Sasser, Jr.
