Father’s Day was celebrated with a picnic BBQ and lunch. The service was casual in the upper hall with special music led by Daniel and Sunny.
On Maundy Thursday this year (March 29), we will have an Agape Meal (a.k.a. Love Feast) at 5:30 pm. Agape Meal is a ceremony like the Holy Communion, but sharing a real meal, not only a symbolic “bread and wine”. The Methodist Father John Wesley loved the love feast that he observed the Moravians do, and made it a regular Methodist celebration. Usually, Maundy Thursday service includes feet washing ceremony, because in John chapter 13, after the last supper, Jesus washes his disciples’ feet and teaches them to love and serve one another. However, considering the cultural differences between Jesus’ culture and ours, instead of washing feet, we will share supper. This year’s Lenten prayer and meditation group members will cook and serve supper as a part of their spiritual practice of serving others. If you would like to experience this meal of Christian love, please sign up at church or by calling Linda Johnson, our church secretary, at 427-2428.

Who Is Jesus to You?
When we see someone we know well do something uncharacteristic, we say things like, “It’s like I don’t even know you” or “Who are you and what did you do with my friend?” These things tend to be said in a jokey situation, but sometimes we encounter more serious abnormality in people we know, or thought we knew. For example, sociopaths can charm you and fool you, then one day reveal their true colours. You might think, “I don’t even know you”; not in a jokey way but in a seriously shocking way. You may realize you truly misjudged someone after thinking that you knew them well. Knowing someone can be a tricky business. Also someone might ask, “Do you know so-and-so?” and you answer, “I know about him, but don’t know him personally.” A lot of times, we are in this situation. Just because we know someone, that doesn’t mean we really know them. more —>
