Today is Maundy Thursday (strange word, we know, we looked it up on Wikipedia); that part of the Easter story that focuses on the Last Supper of Jesus and his disciples. Big meal, wine, betrayal … just your usual night out with the lads.
It is the day before Good Friday, and we’re getting towards the end of the season of Lent in the church calendar – finishes on Easter Sunday.
Today is also when we would normally record your favourite podcast. But we’re not in the studios today exactly because of Maundy Thursday activities. With a favourable wind, we will emerge the other side of Easter, record a week tonight, and the April podcast shall be available sometime next (‘not-so-good’) Friday – 10 April.
And, if you’re wondering what all this Lent thing’s been all about, and what it means to our intrepid team of Darren, Anne & Margaret, you could do no worse than listen to our special Lent Podcast Extra from last year.
Have a Happy Easter!
