Update: April 9, 3:15pm

As the spring days grow longer and brighter, we find ourselves in the dark before the dawn. Holy Week has been different this year - more somber somehow, in the solitude of isolation. There is comfort in community, and we long for our people.   Today is Maundy Thursday, the day Christ commanded us to follow his acts of humility in the washing of feet (Maundy is derived from the Latin, "mandatum," meaning "command"). This is also the day of the Last Supper. Traditionally the church would be busy today.  We would have had a service, followed by an Agape dinner, then the Stripping of the Altar, and finally Watch Through the Night. But we can't gather. So, we're doing what we can in new and different ways. Parishioners have registered for virtual agape dinners and will meet this evening over Zoom, a virtual service will be posted on Facebook at 7:
