Hurrah for Morgan Mill!
We have just returned from a short trip to the Hill Country. If you love bluebonnets and need a wildflower fix, go Hwy. 181 to 84 to 16 for the most spectacular views of recent years. Some of the best blooms can be seen around San Saba. It is well-worth the trip.
Today is a special day in all religions around the world. Palm Sunday at the Morgan Mill Methodist will be celebrated with an entry parade of palms with special music at 9:30 am. On Wednesday, April 4, the Morgan Mill Baptists will have a special time of scriptural reflections on the Cross in the auditorium at 7 p.m.
A new tradition started last year on Maundy Thursday, at the Morgan Mill Tabernacle. Maundy Thursday, also known as Holy Thursday, is the Christian feast or holy day falling on the Thursday before Easter that commemorates the Last Supper of Jesus Christ with the Apostles. At the tabernacle, there will be a re-enactment of the Lordís Supper on April 5 at 5:15 presented by Morgan Mill and Bluff Dale Methodists. This community event is based on Leonardo de Vinciís painting. He was 42 when he was commissioned by the Duke of Milan to decorate the dining hall of the convent church of Santa Maria in Milan, Italy. As an appropriate theme for this dining hall, Leonardo chose the Last Supper. He chose what he considered the most dramatic moment of the meal; the moment just after the Lord had said, ďOne of you will betray me.Ē Instantly, the twelve apostles stared at the Lord in utter amazement and at one another in stark unbelief. In this presentation on Thursday night, the Morgan Mill United Methodist Church will bring a re-creation of this moment. The apostles are represented by a wide range of contemporary men and women, from different walks of life, as reminder that Christ still breaks bread with people of all kinds, even today. You will experience reflections of who they are and what they may have been thinking in this moment. Some of the disciples will be played by Ken Broeder, Cathey Hartmann, Gary Key, Bettye Key, Gary Spindor, Barbara Minix, Barbara McKnight, Debbie Hooper, Pam Bush, Wesley Slimp, Griff High, Janette Halliday, and Sandi Herbertson. Yvonne Lindenmeier and Dean Minix will be narrators. David Quinn will be supplying the music. Laraine Waughtal, preacher at Morgan Mill and Bluff Dale Methodist, invites everyone to join them at 5:15 p.m. April 5 at the Morgan Mill Tabernacle.
Next Sunday, Easter morning, there are two sunrise services available to you in Morgan Mill. The Morgan Mill Baptists will be assembling at the front of the church parking lot at 6:35 a.m. to go to Arlin and Bobbie Quarles. A fellowship breakfast will precede the sunrise service. Another opportunity for you is at John and Sandy Sandstromís outdoor deck. Meet at the Morgan Mill Methodist church or gather at 6736 CR 156, 3.2 miles from the Morgan Mill Community Center. Bring your favorite breakfast food and there will be an inspirational devotion. Everyone is invited. The Morgan Mill Church of Christ will have their Easter Services at the usual time. There is a place for everyone on Easter Sunday in Morgan Mill.
