Dear Friends and Members of Veradale UCC!
Below are the plans for Maundy Thursday and Good Friday. Look for another email for Easter Sunday information. Please, let me know if you will read on of the parts below. Thanks!
Thursday, April 9 at 6pm Maundy Thursday: Last Supper: We gather from our homes, all get our own meal, and meet over Go to Meeting. We will talk about the Passover of Death as the Hebrew stayed in their homes, behind closed doors. There are some recipes in the news letter.Please, send me your favorite recipes for Easter and I will send them to everyone on my list. Bring bread and a drink to the meal to share in the rite of remem brance. The meal will be followed by the Tenebrae which will be on both Facebook and Go To Meeting. Think about how you will want to darken your home as we go through the readings of the Tenebrae. You might want to turn off you lights, electric candles, or regular candles (you do not have to have the full 13 candles). You might have just one lamp that you turn off at the end.
Please join my meeting from your computer, tablet or smartphone.
You can also dial in using your phone.
