Holy Week Reflections.

On three consecutive nights, three candles were lit - One in the name of the Maker – One in the name of the Son and one in the name of the Spirit – To help guide us through Holy week, on toward the capture, trial and crucifixion of our Lord.
The readings and orations were respectful and reverently delivered and the music that was played helped us to visualise and reflect on the last week of our Saviour’s life here on earth. The Holy Week Reflections encouraged us to engage with the fear, the betrayal, the false accusations and the feeling of loneliness, desolation and anguish that Jesus must have sensed as he walked forth to meet the fearful fate that he was destined to endure.
I can only speak for myself but I feel that my faith, during the first three days of Holy Week was taken to a new and deeper level.
However, I am sure I can speak for all those of us who attended the Holy Week Reflections, when I say thank you to Reverend Anne, reader Diana and lay-preacher Philip for guiding us so thoughtfully and reverently through the first three days of Holy Week.
