We will gather in the Fellowship Hall before the actual liturgy begins with a kind of "agape" (ἀγαπή, Greek for "fellowship love") meal of bread, cheese, olives, and wine. These foods were traditionally used by the Early Church. Our gathering is rather quiet, amid a setting which is intended to remind us of the Upper Room -- a simple table with 13 places. To begin the service, we will process together into the church for the Maundy Thursday service.
