I know it’s a little late posting this, but last week was a bit busy.
I’ve assisted with Holy Week services at my home congregation and on vicarage, but never have I assisted with Holy Week services as a pastor, until last week. I have to say that it is rather emotional seeing the altar stripped at the conclusion of the service. It marks the finality of everything leading up to Good Friday.
My sermon was centered on what Christ did that evening: washed His disciples’ feet, instituted a new command ("Love one another"), but more importantly, He instituted the Lord’s Supper, where He gives us His precious body and blood.
