I think some of you may have already heard this one, but I do believe it’s one of the best sermons on Maundy Thursday that I have ever heard:
Fasten your seatbelt, though. It may shake you. It’s supposed to.
A blessed Maundy Thursday to all.
This is a detail from “The Last Supper”–notice the wine glass, contrary to what Dan Brown said that there is no “grail”–that is taken, I believe, from a Renaissance-era copy of Leonardo Da Vinci’s masterpiece, which captures like a snapshot the disciples’ reactions when our Lord says, “one of you will betray me.” It is thought to capture Leonardo’s original coloring and other details since faded from the original painting that is in such terrible condition.
Steve, I second your recommendation of that sermon! Who preached it?
That was my pastor, Mark Anderson of Lutheran Church of the Master, Corona del Mar, CA.
Glad it was a blessing to you!
