Maundy Thursday memories

We're heading out the door for Maundy Thursday services in just a couple of minutes. C always does a simple, Scripture-focused silent communion service for this day of Holy Week and it is truly lovely. When Mowgli called earlier this week, he remembered with fondness the Thursday services and said they were always his favorite. His exact words: "They were very Quaker-like."

Many years ago now, it was at Maundy Thursday services that Boo first expressed her desire to be a Christian. I was at work that night so C told her to wait for Mommy. As it turned out, we all piled onto her bed on Easter Sunday morning and she bowed her head and folded her hands in her lap and gave her heart to Jesus. Sweet memories . . .
