Sunday Worship with Bishop Rob- 9:30- NOT 10:00am!!
Sunday, 9:30 AM , Christ Church Exeter

The bishop will be leading a liturgy of “A Sacred Meal for a Dispersed Community.” Acknowledging that we are not in the same physical space in the same way that Jesus gathered in the Upper Room with his disciples on the night before he suffered, we can come together nonetheless via online technology or at home.  We do so out of the spiritual yearning for closeness expressed by our Savior who said, “I have eagerly desired to share this Passover with you before I suffer.” (Luke 22:15)

These services are based on the Agape Meal for Maundy Thursday found on page 84 in the Book of Occasional Services and they acknowledge a connection with the Jewish Shabbat tradition of a Friday night ceremonial meal usually celebrated in the home, remembering the dispersal of the Jewish people and God’s provision in exile.
