Yesterday was Thursday – Maundy Thursday.
Which in a normal time – we would of gone to the 7:30 pm. service
at our church – Community Lutheran Church – Sterling Va.
We spent the day doing the small things around the house.
However – you tend to run out of small things!
I have found myself more and more working on puzzles
Sherry is finishing up the taxes
and I made a call to the maintenance firm who we have a contract through
to set up the semi yearly tune up on the two HVAC systems we have.
It is that time of year – and we have it done in the Fall & Spring!
I was able to schedule it for two weeks out !
Hoping by that time – things will loosen up a bit!
However – I did question them on the procedure
and was satisfied that we would be safe with doing this!
Sherry has been sewing Masks and we had to deliver to a friend
I left them on their steps and we had delivered several
to the Church Mail Box in Sterling.
Our Youth director had put out a message
Her grand parents really needed them!
So – Sherry made them and we also dropped them off!
By 7:30 PM. we were sitting at the table
Two Candles – a small bottle of wine
Two glasses & the computer tuned into the live stream on face book
A printed off bulletin of the service
and watching as members and friends from back home joined us.
Sherry had put out a invite on her web page
She had also done this for Palm Sunday service.
And – a lot of people joined in!
The Maundy Thursday service ends up with the stripping of the altar
And we have participated in this in the past.
It is something you remember – at least for me.
And for us emotional as well.
What has become abnormal in these days
had a piece of normal inserted back into our lives
as it has been for over 2000 years!
Thank you for reading Papa’s World
WHERE FRIENDS MEET THE FAMILY!
