Maundy Thursday

Several gifted liturgists have prepared online and at-home Maundy Thursday offerings.

Note: if you’d like to carry the tissue paper idea from Palm Sunday through to Easter, invite your folks to use their tissue paper as their placemats for dinner tonight, or piled in the center of the table beneath a centerpiece. We’ll have an option for using them on Friday and Saturday, too.

Rather than reinvent the wheel with yet another iteration, I suggest:

This At Home Liturgy for Maundy Thursday from Rev. Sarah Are of Sanctified Art, LLC.

A meal-based liturgy from Rev. Teresa Whetsel, First UMC in Miller, SD. Access resource

Dr. Marcia McFee’s “Comfort Food – A Feast of Love” (Worship Design Studio) for worship leaders to share with folks sheltering in place.

A simple bread recipe I have used often in teaching about the Passover and the Last Supper can be found here. The ingredients are pretty basic: wheat and white flour (or gluten free), baking powder, salt; oil, water, honey and molasses. This is a large batch – enough to serve a good-sized congregation communion – but it’s tasty and families may not mind having extra to eat!
