Back to Basics
In spite of a childhood where Sunday school and Chapel were the norm and prayer as regular a pastime as brushing my teeth, my knowledge of religious festivals such as Easter is sketchy to say the least. This year – maybe because there are just the two of us – I have felt a need to know more. I watched the third episode of ‘The Passion’ on TV, where Jesus is betrayed and crucified and plan to watch the first two episodes this afternoon and the final one tonight. It is all familiar but I find it comforting to get it clear in my head.
I happened on this blog yesterday which started me thinking. She gives an excellent explanation of Maundy Thursday, which previously I had just associated with Her Maj giving shillings to elderly men.
