Maundy Thursday Reflection by The Rev. Kaji Douša
“If your traditional place is to kneel at the seat of power, hiding your face, keeping quiet, holding back, never upsetting the people who hold the reins to your ability to thrive, then truly following Jesus means a subversion all of this. If you were born into a position that allows you to tower over everyone else, then following Jesus will mean getting down on your knees. If your place in life includes expectations of servitude, then following Jesus might just mean standing up.
“Taking seriously the practice of giving alms, one of the traditional Lenten disciplines, means setting the conditions so that this is possible for everyone. What might that take in your life? What line is God challenging in your life?”
