Join us for Holy Week! Yes, all four days! (Is there any other way?)

March 28, 2012

Time.  There’s never enough of it and we always want more of it.  And yet God consecrates what we have.  Some time is given to us and we think nothing of it, and some we have to reserve, carve out, store, protect.  Because if we don’t it will be gone before we know it and we will never be able to get it back.

Holy Week.  A whole week of time deserving to be protected, honored, kept holy.  How in the world can we do that?  How can anyone, in this day and age, expect me to keep a whole week as sabbath?  I have enough trouble getting to one church service a week, and now you want me to come to four?!  Are you crazed?

In a word, yes. At least, probably.  But that’s irrelevant to this discussion.

So how can you do it?  It’s both simple and difficult at the same time.  It’s both profound in its ease and mind-bending in what it requires.

You just do it.

You just say: I’m in.  We’re doing this this year.  Everything else takes a back burner.  Do you know what happens if you don’t do it?

Nothing.

Do you know what happens if you do?

Come and see.
