#TBT Throwback Thursday – The Breakfast Club

Thirty-two years ago The Breakfast Club assembled for the first time and a movie classic built on timeless teen angst and coming of age was born. This movie came out when I was a teenager back in the 1980’s and it is a movie for all generations. The video above features the last scenes of the movie to the music of Simple Minds “Don’t You Forget About Me”.

Today Is Maundy Thursday

(From The Episcopal Church Website) The Thursday in Holy Week. It is part of the Triduum, or three holy days before Easter. It comes from the Latin mandatum novum, “new commandment,” from John 13:34. The ceremony of washing feet was also referred to as “the Maundy.” Maundy Thursday celebrations also commemorate the institution of the eucharist by Jesus “on the night he was betrayed.”

This evening at my parish, St. Peter’s Episcopal we will observe this event as a part of our Holy Week observances. Easter is one day, an important day but the story of it all begins on Palm Sunday leading up to Good Friday. The story of Easter is not complete without it’s backstory.
