Maundy Thursday

 

May we let go, and grow bright as stars in a clear, frosty night, the more we are stripped of what we thought we could not do without.

It is an evening to consider exactly what it means to let go, to be stripped of what we thought we could not do without. In the Christian tradition tonight is filled with painful separation.

None of us can imagine what it must feel like. To be separated from those we love. The heart pleads for release and return. We can’t imagine what this would feel like until the moment it’s before us. The disciples watched as their teacher, friend and holy one was drug away leaving them in shock, grief and fear.

The following days were filled with horror and deep sadness. and then a turn that shed light on all that was possible,

Alone, without the things we thought were necessity may we be reminded that we have access to deep seeds that have been planted, and bright stars that shine.
