‘Maundy’ is the English form of the Latin word for “commandment.” Jesus’ new commandment, “love one another as I have loved you,” is the focus of our Maundy Thursday service of supper and shadows. We will share a simple meal, scripture readings, and Holy Communion, in remembrance of the last supper.
