Lockdown 2020: What I’ll miss about Holy Week by Tracey Messenger

And in Holy Week we intentionally follow that journey, with its emotional ups and downs, knowing that there is no escape from the cross – we can’t bypass Maundy Thursday and Good Friday to get to the joy of Easter Sunday. They are part of the journey. We must go down before we can come back up.

Contemplation – stepping out on a journey

I wonder where you’re at this morning. Calm, serene, joyful, chilled, tired, anxious, stressy. We’ll all be in different places, different spaces.

The focus of my sermon today is trying to help us think about being more contemplative in our lives – I’ll unpack later what I mean by that – but to start, take a deep breath – maybe two and relax. Be present to this time and this moment.
