Who’s ready for a break?

This is a reminder that there will be no classes on Thursday, March 29, in observance of Maundy Thursday. This leads up to Spring Break, occurring the week after Resurrection Sunday / Easter (April 2-6). Enjoy the long break, and we will see you back in class on Tuesday, April 10.

John 14:1-4 “Do not let your hearts be troubled. You believe in God; believe also in me. My Father’s house has many rooms; if that were not so, would I have told you that I am going there to prepare a place for you? And if I go and prepare a place for you, I will come back and take you to be with me that you also may be where I am. You know the way to the place where I am going.”

Maundy Thursday, also known as “Holy Thursday,” is the Thursday before Easter. It’s a day of anticipation in which we wait for the grim events of Good Friday and the joyous news of Easter Sunday. The word “maundy” comes from the Latin word mandatum, which translates to “commandment.” The particular commandment is found in John 13. Jesus, washing his disciples’ feet on the evening of the Last Supper, says to them:

“I am giving you a new command. You must love each other, just as I have loved you. If you love each other, everyone will know that you are my disciples.” — John 13:34-35 (CEV)
