FROM THE DESK OF PASTOR BRANDON

A Journey Worth Considering
by Brandon Eggar

When it comes to taking trips there are many who would rather forgo all the planning, and simply enjoy the destination itself. I’m not one of these. I want to focus on the planning. I want to make the arrangements. I want to scope out the sites in advance. I’m the type of person who thoroughly enjoys the planning as well as the actual travel from point A to point B. For me, the journey – the planning and the travel – makes the destination even more desirable and worthwhile.

I mention this because there’s a journey coming up that I want to encourage you to consider. It’s an ancient journey. It’s a journey that comes around once a year. It’s a journey with a well-worn path, and it’s a journey with a grand destination. But it’s also a much misunderstood journey, and because this is the case, it easily becomes an abused journey or one that’s neglected altogether.

Holy Week

Dear brothers and sisters:

In entering Jerusalem with Jesus on Palm Sunday, we enter the high week of Holy Week, the last week of Lent. This is the time when Christians around the world commemorate the Passion or “Pascha” of Jesus Christ. It spans from his arrival in Jerusalem to when he was crucified and buried, or in other words from Palm Sunday, to Holy Saturday.

How Do We Commemorate Holy Week?
Three unique services commemorate the events of Jesus’ Passion: 1) his entrance into Jerusalem, 2) the institution of the Lord’s Supper and his agony in Gethsemane, and 3) his sacrificial death on the cross and burial in the tomb. Some traditions add a service for Christ’s burial on Holy Saturday while others have daily services throughout Holy Week to commemorate the week of Jesus’ Passion.

The culmination of the Christian calendar, which spans through Advent, Epiphany, Lent, Easter, and Pentecost is the Paschal Triduum or the Three Day Passover…
