The Holy Grail and the Events of Holy Week

A note about this week’s entries

chalice stained glass janesvilleucc.orgDuring Holy Week this year in my congregation we are looking at the events on the way to and through the cross in connection with the search for the Holy Grail. As you might suppose, this connection is less about the outer search through history for an actual cup than it is about the activity of the Grail in the individual and in community. The Grail is something we raise up in offering, and into which something can be received from above. It requires the activity of the free individual, but finds its most expansive meaning when it becomes a shared experience. It has to do with the heart. It has to do with the meaning of Christ’s uniting himself with humanity and the earth. The sermons during the week as well as conversations following our communion service the Act of Consecration of Man are explorations of the connection between these essential images within Christianity.
