Maundy Thursday Communion & Tenebrae Worship
April 9, 7:00 pm, 2020
A message from Rev. Jim and Victor
Dear Members and Friends of CCEH,
Welcome to Holy Week. This Thursday, April 9, we will have our special Maundy Thursday worship service. We’ll meet via Zoom, as we have that past 3 Sundays. (The Zoom info is the same as for April 5, Palm Sunday, and is also listed below.)
If you’re joining our online worship for the first time, Zoom is rather like Skype, only simpler and easier to use. Simply copy and paste the below link into your Internet browser, and Zoom will take it from there. It will lead you through a simple process of installing the Zoom application on your computer.
Please note also that Zoom provides telephone access to our session in case you don’t have access to a computer, or your computer’s sound isn’t working well, etc.
Before the Maundy Thursday service please prepare your Communion elements – just as you did with Palm Sunday Communion.
Prepare some bread, a slice or a small loaf of any kind of bread. Tortilla or rice cake is fine too. Let it be something you alone or you with others in your house may break and share. Prepare a cup or cups of juice — perhaps grape or cranberry — or wine, with or without alcohol.
Set these elements in the living room or kitchen where you experience worship electronically with our faith community. Perhaps you want to put them on a lovely cloth or fabric that reminds you of a special time or a person deeply connected with you in the communion of saints. Perhaps you will light a candle or place a flower or plant or the photograph of someone you wish to bring into the circle of faith beside the bread and the cup. Thank you for your preparation.
