St. Mary's Reflection: The Rev. David Erickson
An Invitation to an Easter Journey
One of the great gifts of the Christian calendar is the rhythm of returning, year after year, to the life of Jesus amidst our daily lives. One of the most ancient and profound opportunities is to walk the way of the Cross with Christ and then discover the empty tomb. This ancient journey has been known as the Triduum, “Three days,” that include Maundy Thursday, Good Friday, and Holy Saturday/Easter Sunday (In the ancient understanding, a day began at sunset, not sunrise, so Saturday after sundown is the beginning of the day Jesus Christ was raised from the dead.)
We are delighted this year that we will be able to walk this journey in person together. And we invite you to join us for as much as you can.
