The word crucial is derived from the Latin word for “cross.” In that sense, the events of Holy Thursday and Good Friday were crucial because they all led to Jesus’ cross. This word now has come to mean “decisive” or “critical.” At our midweek Lenten services this year, we will consider those decisive and critical hours and the ways in which they were just that for Jesus, those around him, and us.
These services will be on Wednesdays throughout Lent at 7pm.
