TEXTBOOK CHALLENGE  UPDATE
Lutheran Church of the Cross February 22, 2015 Voter’s Meeting decision to support the Textbook Challenge: Noel Hyde reported on what has taken place to date regarding this controversy. A copy of his report is attached. Discussion followed. A motion was made by Joyce Schankin, seconded by Carolyn Lawson, and unanimously passed that Lutheran Church of the Cross take an official stand in this challenge, and address the objections we feel are relevant to the textbook selection used by Charlotte County Schools. It was noted that one major idea put forth by the textbook(s) supports the idea that the Muslims worship the same god as the God worshiped by Christians and Jews. As Christians, we strongly oppose this point of view.

A VERY SPECIAL MAUNDY THURSAY WORSHIP EVENT
On Maundy Thursday, April 2, worshippers at Lutheran Church of the Cross will experience a unique Easter Week service that includes "The Living Dramatization of Leonardo Da Vinci's 'The Last Supper'." We include this dramatization in our Easter Week worship every other year. Please invite your family, friends and neighbors to join us.
 
Please plan to arrive at the church before 7 p.m. At 7:05 p.m., the lights of the Sanctuary will be totally extinguished to allow the cast to enter and the dramatization of Jesus' Last Supper with His disciples to begin in the Chancel.
 
Thirteen men of Lutheran Church of the Cross will bring to life the moment when Jesus said to His disciples, "One of you will betray me." Leonardo Da Vinci painted his interpretation of that very moment in his famous mural "The Last Supper." The dramatization will allow us to imagine what each of the 12 disciples thought and felt at that crucial moment.
 
Following the dramatization and a brief intermission, the congregation will receive Maundy Thursday's Holy Communion. The service will conclude with our traditional stripping of the altar in preparation for the solemnity of Good Friday's Tenebrae service.
