Maundy Thursday and Fasting
He texted me this morning wanting to know the Meaning of Easter. I explained the best I could apologizing for the Tea Party not understanding better even though Dietrich Bonhoeffer drove through here in April 1931
I called a Yale Grad, and the Son of Nixon's Barber to see if my explanation to him was adequate.
Still I was chastened a little about his Fasting Question; at same time there was some humor; especially for those who knew my Father.
In 2006 I went to the Maundy Thursday service at the Collinsville, Baptist Church where my Mother was baptized.
I haven't been back since.
Tribalism masquerading as Christianity there; even so there is the legacy of John Jeffers and my Mother; and some others have come through who got enough of the Spirit rightly divided and have blossomed elsewhere.
Pray for those at the service this evening in Collinsville, and their hard hearted hearts.
