Holy Week. The most catalytic week in human history. We want to commemorate it as such and give extra focus on where the week leads us to … the Cross of Christ.
Though quarantined, we don’t want to treat this like any other quarantine week. This is Holy Week and we want to bring extra attention and focus on Christ, making much of Him in our hearts and minds, and with our time.
Each day this week, we will post a 10-minute Passion Week podcast consisting of excerpts from a series of messages I’ve given at TD and various retreats years ago called The Cross: His Glory, Our Hope.
Beginning Monday, our plan is for each of us to listen to the podcast each day on our own and then meet with our small groups each night for 30 minutes to discuss the podcast, marvel at Jesus, and enjoy time with Him.
On Friday, the church is having a Good Friday service from 7 p.m. – 8 p.m. Then TD will be having A Celebration of Jesus from 8 p.m. – 9 p.m. where we will all share praises, thanks, and amazement of Jesus, the Father, and the Holy Spirit borne out of the discussions and personal reflections we’ve had this week.
“‘They that honor Me, I will honor,’ says the Lord” 1 Samuel 2:30
Let’s make a big effort to honor and love on the Lord this week, TD!
*** The TD Leaders also want to encourage you to try to make Holy Week special with your family as well, perhaps by facilitating dialogue or sharing about each day’s topic and discussion in whatever manner fits your family best. You may even invite them to listen each day with you. Whatever way, make much of Jesus!
