Holy Week begins tomorrow. This is a somber week for us as we go through the events that led up to the Crucifixion of Christ. I hope that you take some time this week to prayerfully and whole-heartedly give thanks to God for the sacrifice that Christ made me and you. On Good Friday, we will be holding an all day prayer vigil from 6:00 in the morning until 10:00 at night in the Wesley Covenant Chapel. I hope that you will participate in this as we seek to have communion with God during these solemn hours. There will also be a Taize service at noon and a Tenebrae service at 3:00pm in the Wesley Chapel for those who would like to spend time in guided prayer.
A prayer tip for you. During your prayer time this week, I encourage you to close your eyes and imagine yourself at the foot of the cross on that dark day in which Christ was crucified. What would you say to your sacrificial Lord? How would it move you? What would you feel, knowing that the punishment he endures should have been for you? Explore these questions during your prayer time and then give thanks to God for our savior, Jesus Christ.
