We are coming up on my favorite week of the entire year: Holy Week. It wraps up my second-favorite season of the year, Lent, while gracefully ushering me into my absolute favorite season of the year, Easter!
Holy Week is like the carabiner of the most exciting parts of the journey of faith and life: It connects us to our deepest needs for renewal and repentance (Lent), while at the same time connecting us to the amazing gifts of actual renewed relationship with God and life lived with confidence in the resurrection promise here and now (Easter).
Especially if you haven’t experienced the fullness of Holy Week week as an adult, I am really hopeful that each of you will engage the opportunity to jump head-first into this holy and powerful seven days, whether you are local or thousands of miles from Macksburg. (If you need help finding a church near you – let me know and I’ll connect you!)
Here are links for you to peruse for a brief look at what you might expect and why. That said, I’ve found that if I enter into such experiences with an open heart, I often experience even more than I would have expected!
