Maundy Thursday

Maundy Thursday — He has gained renown by his wonderful deeds; the Lord is gracious and merciful. Psalm 111:4

Thursday, April 6 — Psalm 44:17–26
Job 8; Romans 13

God said, “As long as the earth endures, seedtime and harvest, cold and heat, summer and winter, day and night, shall not cease.” Genesis 8:22

Jesus took a loaf of bread, and when he had given thanks, he broke it and gave it to them, saying, “This is my body, which is given for you. Do this in remembrance of me.” And he did the same with the cup after supper, saying, “This cup that is poured out for you is the new covenant in my blood.” Luke 22:19-20

As faithful as the cycles of day and night, and seedtime and harvest may be, you, Lord, are even more faithful. You invite us again and again to your table as treasured guests. We give thanks, fully and freely without end, that you give yourself to us in love. Amen.
