Take off Your Shoes - Tenebrae

When Moses spotted a burning bush in the wilderness the first thing God said to him:

“Come no closer! Remove the sandals from your feet, for the place on which you are standing is holy ground.”
- Exodus 3:5

I wonder if God knew that Moses might get scared and run away.  Taking off your shoes slows you down.

If you're in town for the Easter Weekend I hope you will join us in worship.  Our service starts this evening (Thursday 7pm) and ends on Sunday morning, if you are away this weekend, or can't make it to some of the services; read through the following and join us 'in spirit'.


Take off your Shoes

Reading John 13:1-20

Our first act will be to come to church and take off our shoes.

It slows you down.

We will wash feet.
Or you can wash your hands.
Or you can sit and pray.
Remember how Jesus washes us taking away our sins.  Serving us with love and calling us to serve with love.

Take, eat; this is my body

We will share communion.

Remembering how Jesus feeds us.

Reading John 18:1-27 we will leave the service in silence and darkness.  Remembering how Jesus was betrayed by his disciples.
