This year on Maundy Thursday (March 29), I want to invite us to feast together. Not pot-luck. Not covered-dish. Not “meal-without-intentionality.” But rather, a feast.
Consider these words from the prophet Isaiah:
“On this mountain the Lord of hosts will make for all peoples a feast of rich food, a feast of well-aged wine, of rich food full of marrow, of aged wine well refined. And he will swallow up on this mountain the covering that is cast over all peoples, the veil that is spread over all nations. He will swallow up death forever; and the Lord God will wipe away tears from all faces, and the reproach of his people he will take away from all the earth, for the Lord has spoken. It will be said on that day, “Behold, this is our God; we have waited for him, that he might save us. This is the Lord; we have waited for him; let us be glad and rejoice in his salvation.”” (Isaiah 25:6–9, ESV)
The Lord’s supper is a paradox. It both looks backwards, but looks forward. It draws us inward, and calls us outward. It is both solemn and joyful.
So I am asking us, during Holy Week, to gather together as a family and share a feast.
