Happy Easter, everyone!
I know I’ve been loading you up with video after video, but I had Blogger’s Block (trust me, it’s a real thing!).
This week has been a really cool experience for me. Since it’s been the week leading up to Easter, the Christian organization I’m involved in has really pumped it up. On Tuesday we read through the entire gospel of John. That was such a cool experience for me because I had never just sat down and read through the story of Jesus. We all read it out loud, one chapter at a time, as a community. I heard things that I had never really realized.
Thursday we did something a little, well a lot, different from the normal church service. We had a Jewish Seder, which is an order of celebrations…a meal. We had different herbs, greens, breads, and juices to eat in a certain order. There was different kinds of music, speaking, prayers…it was such a cool experience.
On Friday, a lot of us got together to have a meal with each other. It was sort of to symbolize the Last Supper. We then watched “The Passion” together. I had never seen it before. It was so good to see, especially right before Easter. It was so real; I couldn’t stand to watch some of it. It really wrapped this week up nicely.
I can’t wait until Sunday when we celebrate together with all of our churches everywhere.
