Maundy Thursday

Well, I'm back in the land of the living -- more or less. Two good nights' sleep under my belt. Things are looking up. Tonight is Maundy Thursday, though, and I haven't come up with any really spiffy plans for the evening service.

But then, I don't think I really have to. I mean, special liturgies or special music or seders or whatever are neat things for a major occasion like Maundy Thursday -- but not really necessary. A simple eucharist is as good as one tricked out with big words or special meditation. After all, it's him they're coming for, him they're hungry for.

The urge to decorate the inherently valuable is an old human trait. Collapse )
