I made my annual Holy Week visit to the Living Word Christian Center website today, checking to see how Dale Carnegie graduate Mac (Sky Pilot) Hammond was observing the some of the central events of the Christian Gospel....
Cue the cricket praise band.
There's no mention of Maundy Thursday (today). Here's what Wikipedia says about today's observances:
Maundy Thursday (also known as Holy Thursday or Great and Holy Thursday), is the Christian feast or holy day falling on the Thursday before Easter that commemorates the Last Supper of Jesus Christ with the Apostles. It is the fifth day of Holy Week, and is preceded by Holy Wednesday and followed by Good Friday. In 2009, Maundy Thursday will occur on April 9th for Western Christian traditions including Roman Catholicism.
On this day four events are commemorated: the washing of the Disciples' Feet by Jesus Christ, the institution of the Mystery of the Holy Eucharist at the Last Supper, the agony of Christ in the Garden of Gethsemane, and the betrayal of Christ by Judas Iscariot.
There is an event called 'Parenting Young Children' happening on Maundy Thursday. I'm not sure that's mentioned in the Gospels as a Holy Week event.
Looking for a Good Friday service, when Christians around the world remember the ultimate sacrifice on the cross?
Don't go to Living Word. It promises to be a quiet evening.
However, all is not lost. You'll want to get up bright and early on Saturday, April 11th for the 'Manhood Men's Breakfast'.

I wonder what the Men of the Manhood Men's Breakfast are trying to finish.... and do they ALL have what it takes?
I dunno - I'm gay, and this sounds like a good place to check out manly men. Maybe I should go.
