Holy Thursday empowers us to love and serve each other as Jesus did.
Here are a few pictures from the gathering that took place at Elgin United Church (The Elgin-Portland Pastoral Charge). A Holy Thursday Service of Anointing and Communion.
Holy Thursday is A Gathering to Remember Jesus and his disciples around the table of Love, where Jesus washed their feet, shared the Bread of Life and the Cup of the New Covenant sealed with his blood.
Here is a prayer that we prayed as a Community of Love and Faith:
Holy One, we remember the love and works of Jesus, and we ask You humbly to pour out Your Holy Spirit upon us and upon these gifts of bread and cup. As we break the bread and bless the cup, may we experience communion with Christ. By Your Spirit make us one with Christ and one another, that we may serve You by serving one another with humility and grace. Help us to wash each other’s feet and anoint one another with Love. Through Christ, with Christ, in Christ, and in the unity of the Holy Spirit, all glory and honor are yours, now and forever. Amen.
May tonight’s significance remind you – Your are a Beloved child of God, Created in God’s image.
Jesus Christ loves and heals you, and calls you to do the same.
We are called to reflect Jesus in ALL that we do and say.
Be Blessed, Be a Blessing and Live Love. Amen.
