A special week....

Last week was a special week at our church.  In observance of  Holy Week (the week preceding Easter Sunday), there were brief services at midday the first three days.  Then, on Wednesday evening, a Seder meal was held.  This was the first such meal I had ever attended, and I found it to be very informative.

I don't understand why this is sideways!

A special Maundy Thursday service featured a reading of "The Women's Tale."  This was a new presentation at our church, although it has been done in many sites through the years. 

Good Friday presented another opportunity for a special church service, all leading up to a glorious Easter Sunday!

I did not visit any blogs on Sunday, so I must be checking in to see what has been going on with you. 

This is a new week, with a lot going on for many.  I hope today will be a good one for you. 

Thank you for reading.  I really appreciate your comments.

  10. I never attended a seder meal although they had one at our church one year. Sounds informative as they explain what it represent.

    Have a great week.
