“A new commandment I give to you, that you love one another: just as I have loved you, you also are to love one another.” John 13:34
I’ve heard many sermons on Maundy Thursdays. Themes usually focus on preparation for death and separation or the theme of servant leadership revealed by Jesus’ action in washing the feet of his disciples. This year my pastor, Rev. Dirk Lesnett, began by defining “Maundy” as from the root word “command” or “mandate.” His sermon theme was love, specifically, to “love one another.”
