Holy Week Marathon Starts NOW!
Today marks the official start of a Marathon Week of churchgoing for many of us. It’s Holy Week, and we ain’t stoppin’ ’til the last parishioners droppin’.
It all started today with Palm Sunday. Tomorrow the local Cascade Community Chorus will be singing Handel’s Messiah: Part II and Mendelssohn’s Hear My Prayer at the Seventh Day Adventist Church in Chehalis (7 pm, don’t be late!). Tuesday, we get the night off. Holy Wednesday, choir practice and HE. Maundy Thursday we sing the Tenebrae. Then we’ve got Good Friday, that leads to Holy Saturday and the Easter Eve vigil, which brings us to Easter: The Biggest Day of the Year for all the Chreasters to head into church so they can wear their new Spring duds and go see the Easter Bunny raise Jesus from the dead, hunt eggs and eat candy…or something like that.
Whew! I’m tired just listening to it all. But excited!
What are you doing this week? What is your favorite part of Holy Week? What do you dread most? Does the Easter Bunny come to your house? Do you dye eggs? Can I have some of your candy?
Oh, and guess who’s sleepy!? That’s right, on the right, that’s my grandson: Mason Reese. 😀
