Today we want to share an important change regarding the future of the Highrock Network and our shared life together. Nothing is changing immediately, but we want to share the direction we are discerning for the future.
The word Maundy comes from the Latin “mandatum novum”, which means “a new commandment” coming from Jesus’ command to his disciples in John 13:34 – “A new commandment I give to you, that you love one another, even as I have loved you.”
At Highrock, we normally celebrate this day with a shared meal in people’s homes scattered throughout the North Shore. Just as Jesus gathered with his disciples and shared a meal, we gather together in the same fashion to remember their meal and to share in it a bit as we gather together.
This night is about many things but none of them more important than this: a new command has been issued by Christ to his followers – that we love one another in the way that he has loved us. A new way of being, of loving, enters the world on this night. A way that will change and redeem all things if it is properly employed. And in the most amazing of ways Jesus goes out at the end of this night to model this way of being and of loving for us.
Come join us in the remembrance of the Last Supper that Jesus had with his disciples. We will be gathering in Highrockers' homes, sharing a meal with each other, and participating in a Maundy Thursday craft. The food will be a group effort---potluck style, but your host will send you more details on that as we get closer.
Only meeting virtually? Have no fear! We have a virtual Maundy Thursday for those who would like to meet on Zoom as well!
