Red River Church says
There are some rich traditions that, while perhaps new to some and familiar to others, are part of our ancient Christian heritage. The Maundy Thursday service, where Christ's last supper with his disciples is commemorated, is one such tradition. In this our first year, we've invited Carrie Graham, founding pastor of The Church Lab, to lead us in exploring it's liturgy and practices.

This sacred eve for worship invites us to celebrate the love Jesus shared, and showed us to share in reckless ways. On Maundy Thursday, Love's ripple effects are shown this night to be unbound by status, unchained from time itself.

The gist is that on Maundy Thursday we celebrate all that would be great about Christ's last supper: exchanging gratitude, love and the very food that began communion itself. We submit ourselves as servants of such Love expressions, even in the beauty that emerges from awkward, raw attempts.

How do we commemorate such things? This Maundy Thursday eve, we worship by washing one another's feet. We practice the conundrum and joy that it is to be served and to serve throughout the Christ follower's life.

This service is intended to be cushioned for those unfamiliar with its practices, as well as those whose foot washing skills are frequent and unparalleled.

Come awkward and smooth, smelly feet and bruised. Come socks and sandals, wet boots and posh heels. We'll receive love and in turn, share this Love real.
