Maundy Thursday


Last night, members of our church ranging in age from 4-60 yrs. old, performed one of the most touching programs I have ever seen. The narration and music that was chosen for each scene were a powerful message within themselves, but the sincere performances of each of the cast members were such a blessing to me and everyone else there last night. Thanks to all who had a part in this program, everyone did an amazing job. I am especially proud of Nathan, for taking part in the program.

The program was the story of Jesus' life on earth, his teaching, preaching, and healing, the Last Supper {Communion was served to the congregation}, the Cross, and his death. One of the most moving scenes to me, was the woman with the 12-year issue of blood who believed if she could only "touch the hem of his garment", which was acted out while the song by Nicole C. Mullen played in the background.



"One Touch"

Been ostracized for 12 years, I'm used to being alone
Spent everything I had and now it's gone
I'm used to being put down, my issues tell it all
My only hope is anchored in this fall

If I could just touch the hem of His garment
I know I'd be made whole
If I could just press my way through this madness
His love would heal my soul if only one touch

So many people calling, how could He ever know
That just a brush of Him would stop the flow
If He knew would He rebuke me or shame me to the crowd?
Well, I'm desperate 'cause it's never or it's now

If I could just touch the hem of His garment
I know I'd be made whole
If I could just press my way through this madness
His love would heal my soul

And then suddenly He turned around
He said somebody has unleashed my power
Well, frightened and embarrassed I bowed
You see I told Him of my troubles and how

I had to touch the hem of His garment
And I know I've been made whole
And how I had pressed my way through this madness
And His love has healed my soul

Then with one word He touched the hem of my garment
And you know I've been made whole
And somehow He pressed His way through my madness
And His love has healed my soul

I tell you He touched me
He reached way down and touched me
When no one else would touch me
Yeah, Jesus sure enough touched me
And I know I've been made whole

Here's a link to the video:




The program will conclude on Sunday morning during the choir's cantata.
