Looking to Easter: Jesus’ Last Days
Liz Martin

When cleaning out my father’s apartment after his death, I came upon a dusty binder with well-loved pages covered in highlights, notes written in the margins, and dog eared edges. The title, “An Order of Service for Maundy Thursday,” brought back good memories of going with Dad to our Unitarian Universalist church every Thursday before Easter. At the age of 12, he first asked me to read parts from the script with him, which I did. The crowd was often small, but we enjoyed ourselves no matter how many there were.
