Here’s a call to worship for Maundy Thursday.  It was written by Joanna Harader.

Call to Worship for Maundy Thursday

We are Jesus’ disciples,
following him even as he moves toward the cross.
Even as he wraps a towel around his waist.
Even as he kneels to wash the filth from the feet of his friends.

We are Jesus’ disciples,
longing to be faithful even as the night grows dark.
Even as betrayers loom.
Even as the powers that oppose the way of Christ press in around us.

We are Jesus’ disciples,
struggling to love others even as Jesus loved us.
We are Jesus’ disciples,
gathered here to worship God:
Creator, Redeemer, Sustainer. Amen.
