Holy Week Beckons

Holy Week has arrived. At Life on the Vine we try to keep it simple, organic, beautiful, true. We try to remember respectfully yet thankfully. On Good Friday we do a Tenebrae. Then our vigil service really starts at sunrise on Sunday morning (Some year we hope to start on Saturday evening). Early Easter Sun. a.m. we go thru a shortened version of vigil, the lighting of the fire, a breaking of the chains and the opening of the sanctuary and the great Hallelujah. We baptize and re-commit to our baptisms and share the Eucharist together. Then we celebrate by eating an awesome breakfast love feast. Then the service of the Word, the proclamation of the new reality of the resurrection. Wow. It is the ultimate practice of Spiritual Formation for we really must be shaped by the Word and Response and baptism to truly understand and live into this new life we have been given in Jesus death and resurrection.

I’ll be back posting next week. Until then. God be with you as you walk through the steps of Christ’s passion into life.
