Chapel Team Announces Plans for Holy Week Worship


Decatur, GA.—The chapel team responsible for services during Holy Week has announced its plans to provide worship for the seminary community, March 21-24. Worship will be held on the seminary’s campus each day at 10:00 a.m. in the Campbell Hall Chapel, except worship on Wednesday, which will be held in the Harrington Center Chapel. The team chose the week’s worship themes from the daily Lectionary passages in Isaiah and John: Monday’s theme is “Call to Discipleship,” based on Isa. 42:1-9 and John 12:1-11; Tuesday’s theme of “Mission” was chosen from the Isa. 49:1-7 and John 12:20-36 readings. Wednesday’s theme is “Cost of Discipleship,” based on texts from Isa. 50:4-9a and John 13:21-32. The theme for Maundy Thursday is “What Does It Mean to Follow Jesus to the Cross?” from John 13:1-17 and 31b-35. In addition the team plans to open a Spirituality Center in the Harrington Center Chapel from Sunday, March 20, at 6:00 p.m. through Easter Sunday on March 27. Plans for the Spirituality Center include an indoor labyrinth, as well as sacred spaces for meditation with art and music, and praying and reading using devotional resources. The chapel leadership team for Holy Week includes senior M.Div. students Devon Beisser Ducheneau, Mike Ducheneau, Stuart Higginbotham, and Amy Summers-Minette. Columbia Theological Seminary, located in Decatur, Georgia, was established in 1828 and is one of 10 theological institutions of the Presbyterian Church (USA). xxx
