Feasts and Festivals

This Week's Feasts and Festivals, Plans and Projects

, , , ,

Bringing back this post series! I’ve always liked it because, let’s face it– if I were really organized, I wouldn’t wait until Sunday to plan for the week. But something is always better than nothing, and it at least forces me to preplan a little bit. To review, I’ve been doing Feasts and Festivals as well as Plans and Projects for a while. It’s been so long, most of the old posts don’t even have functional pictures anymore! Not so sure about links. Anyway… This week.

Maundy Thursday: The basin and the towel

feet 1

In an upstairs room, a parable
Is just about to come alive.
And while they bicker about who’s best,
With a painful glance, He’ll silently rise.
Their Savior Servant must show them how
Through the will of the water
And the tenderness of the towel.

In any ordinary place,
On any ordinary day,
The parable can live again
When one will kneel and one will yield.
Our Savior Servant must show us how
Through the will of the water
And the tenderness of the towel.

I love St. Patrick’s Day. He’s such a great, positive saint. Just what we need at the tail end of winter!  Here are just a couple little Saint Patrick’s Day ideas from seasons past.

 A few random ideas, including a peek at our St. Patrick’s Day nature table

A St. Patrick’s Day circle time

And a beautiful prayer by St. Patrick himself

And then of course there’s my St. Patrick’s Day Pinterest board, full of things to make and do!

I’d love to hear your St. Patrick’s Day traditions as well!
