What Love Looks Like

For Maundy Thursday we read John’s version of the Last Supper in which Peter is confused because his expectations of Jesus have been turned upside down.  Jesus took a posture of servitude to wash the feet of the disciples, and Peter could not understand why Jesus would lower himself to do such a thing.  In this period of pandemic, we, too, find that our world has been turned upside down.  But Jesus’ lowering himself to the role of a servant was an act of love, and it was a great example for us to follow, especially in the midst of our current pandemic.  (NOTE: Because of the COVID-19 threat we are having the service today with no one in the congregation.  NOTE:  Although the video begins with the Communion Meditation, once it starts you can scroll back to the beginning of the service if you want.  The video of the entire service is available to watch.)
