In Texas, Easter weekend is recognized as a holiday, so online school is canceled from tomorrow through Monday. This brings an end of the our third week of remote learning. This was also the week when we learned that the rest of our school year (where I work) will be done this way.
It’s Maundy Thursday. We remember Jesus’ final meal with his friends before his Passion. This year, I’m reminded that just a few weeks ago I said goodbye to colleagues as we left for Spring Break not knowing what was in front of us. This add some texture to the experience of the disciples who didn’t know what they were about to see happen to their Teacher and Lord. Life is fragile and unpredictable, then and now.
