Maundy Thursday - Year B
Exodus 12:1-4, (5-10), 11-14
Tracking a beginning is very tricky.
Was Jesus’ last Passover meal a beginning or did it begin with his baptism or temptations or miracles or signs or Temple confrontations or showing up the priestly class?
Does Israel’s first month of the year depend on the last of the plagues or did it begin with a babe on the water or a murder or burning bush or a hardened heart?
Where is your marker for your life? Was it an economic turnaround, a lottery ticket, a relationship beginning or ending, a death of a significant person in your life or your own brush with mortality?
Presuming you can identify your own personal turning point, how do you celebrate it? A feast? With cake and candles? And will others carry that on?
Blessings on identifying your beginning point and the point before that. Eventually you’ll get back to a slight moment before a big bang - how mysterious that there is something rather than nothing. Rejoice and move on.
