holy week = special week

The week before Resurrection Sunday in the past has been identified as Holy Week. That does not make this week better than the other fifty-one weeks. It is, however, a different week—a special week.

In the past during this week churches hosted special services: Good Friday or Tenebrae services or Stations of the Cross. Maundy Thursday services or Last Supper commemorations. 2020 these were all cancelled, and remain uncommon this year. Shout-Out to Peak Community Church that’s hosting a
Holy Week Art Installation this week each noon hour.

Challenge: make Holy Week 2021 your own special week. Read through and reflect upon the Gospel accounts of the arrest, trial and crucifixion of Jesus Christ. (There are many internet sites that allow you to listen to these Scripture readings.)

Here’s a reading schedule:

Saturday is for meditation. Set aside some time Saturday to do absolutely nothing but reflect upon what you read this week. Then, as the sun goes down, prepare to celebrate the most crucial event in human history.

He is risen! He is risen, indeed. ~
