Maundy Thursday


Today is Maundy Thursday. The word “Maundy” comes to us as an Anglo-French word derived from the Latin “mandatum,” which means “commandment.” It refers to when Jesus, in the Upper Room during the Last Super, said to the disciples: “A new command I give you: Love one another. As I have loved you, so you must love one another.” (John 13:34 NIV)
It is also a day the Governor of Iowa has set as a day of prayer. Her request is specifically referring to COVID-19, victims and family members. I ask that you include State and Federal leaders, business leaders, Pastors as they relearn how to preach using empty buildings, and certainly friends and family.
Praying for others is the least we can do to show love for one another.
Rev. Burt Schwab
