This is the most Holy of Weeks in the Christian Calendar. And it’s hard to have much personal awareness of the depths of meaning and miracle in Easter without traveling through the events of the week.
As a church, we are called to welcome people and offer them sacred hospitality wherever they are in their journey. But we should know that we can’t learn much about who we are and who we are called to be on a close and personal level, without ourselves intentionally being “a Pilgrim” throughout the week. We need to journey into and through the depths of Maundy Thursday, Good Friday, Holy Saturday, and Easter Sunday to experience what Jesus’ dying and resurrected life mean for us, this year; now, and as we live into a new future transformed through God’s healing love . . .
As you walk the Pilgrim’s Path of Holy Week in the next days, we invite you to join us around or even on the Prayer Labyrinth. In a world too often rushing on the surface from one thing to the next, it’s an ancient yet fitting way in our busy world to listen deeply for guidance of the Holy Spirit. It can help hold us in a quiet place and offer a sense of sacred, kairos time that can open the “ears of our hearts” to listen in the silence.
Come join us on Good Friday in Wesley Hall for prayerful reflection between 11:00 am – 2:00 pm, and 6:00 – 9:00 pm.
