The Living Last Supper
For 1300 years the Jewish people had followed the instructions of God to share a special Passover meal that reminded them of the way that God had rescued them from slavery in Egypt. Maundy Thursday reminds Christians not only of that first rescue by God, but also of the last gathering of Jesus and his disciples before his death. Like thousands of other Jewish pilgrims, the disciples met to celebrate the Passover in Jerusalem. Our special presentation, The Living Last Supper, is a musical and dramatic reenactment of this Passover meal. This moving portrayal features a cast of Jesus and disciples gathered around the table, as portrayed in the well-known painting by Leonardo Da Vinci. Choral selections from Trinity Choir link together the conversations and questions of those men in the last hours before Jesus’ death.
All are welcome and encouraged to attend this moving experience, which will be offered on both Thursday, April 18 and Friday, April 19 at 7 pm. We are hopeful that our newly renovated Chapel will be finished in time for the Living Last Supper; otherwise it will be held in the Great Hall. Childcare will be available for children in 2nd grade and under.
