Maundy Thursday ~ Holy Thursday….

Celebrations of the Last Supper at Advent Church last night took place in the middle of a thunderstorm….  dramatic in itself – but slightly less dramatic than reports from our clergy of their annual ‘Blessing of the Oils’ service on Wednesday at St. James’ Church, Taichung, when there was a 6.1 earthquake that happened right in the middle of the service….

The 3 people having their feet washed are all SJU students, and the 2 boys are preparing to be baptized on Easter Eve…. please do pray for them.

Foot-washing was followed by the Last Supper – Holy Communion…

And for this special day, I rather like this picture of the Last Supper by Filipino artist Joey Velasco….
