Holy Week Services
As the pastor of Christ Church, I urge you to join us Palm Sunday, March 20th, Maundy Thursday, March 24th, Good Friday, March 25th, and Easter Sunday, March 27th. "We celebrate the memorial of our redemption, O Father, in this sacrifice of praise and thanksgiving." Book of Common Prayer, p. 363) Yes - Worship is a sacrifice, an offering to God. Perhaps when we show up to give back to God rather than get from God, we actually get more than we expect or deserve.
