It is difficult to write about Maundy Thursday because it is so bittersweet. Jesus shows His true love and compassion by washing the feet of His disciples. What an unbelievable act of humility! Then He has His last meal with His closest friends and followers and issues His “Mandate” (root word of Maundy) that we do this in remembrance of Him. The Last Supper and thus the sacrament of communion is the most meaningful part of a worship service. It allows us to completely connect with our Savior.
Afterward, going to pray in the Garden of Gethsemane, Jesus kneels and prays “Not my will, but Your will be done.”
Ultimately, God is in control. A large part of Wellness IS giving up control when circumstances are beyond us. We feel better, are much more compassionate and loving when we take ourselves out of the equation and let God do His good works.
