Can You Relate to Feet? We will remember Jesus washing the feet of his disciples and sharing the Last Supper with them. Have bread or crackers and juice or water ready to share in Communion.
The word ‘Maundy’ is an English form of the Latin word meaning ‘mandate’ or ‘commandment.’ On Maundy Thursday, we remember Jesus gathered with his disciples in an upper room to share the Passover Seder meal, which was a meal of remembering the suffering of their ancestors and the deliverance of the people out of slavery in Egypt. At that meal, Jesus kneels to wash the disciples’ feet and then he gives them…and us, the commandment to love one another.
