Speaking the Truth in Love

Nelson Mandela and the Power of Forgiveness


St. Andrew’s Episcopal Church

310 West Lewis Street

Four Thursdays, Beginning September 19th  2013, at 7:00 pm

(406) 222-0222 or

We will examine the practice of forgiveness, using Nelson Mandela’s life and witness as a starting point, in a four-week series at St. Andrew’s Episcopal Church at the corner of 3rd and Lewis, beginning on September 19, 2013 and continuing on September 26, October 3, and October 10. Each meeting will begin at 7:00 pm and end at 8:30. The public is warmly invited to attend!

One of the great spiritual triumphs of modern history is Nelson Mandela walking out of prison after twenty-seven years of incarceration with his spirit and his heart intact. He did not merely survive prison; he emerged with compassion and generosity in his heart, especially toward those who were his most powerful enemies. The question is: how? What sustained him during those dark decades of imprisonment? And what can we learn from Nelson Mandela about the power and practice of forgiveness? How can each of us learn to love in the difficult places, the places that require the spiritual discipline known as forgiveness?

I always knew that deep down in every human heart, there is mercy and generosity. People must learn to hate, and if they can learn to hate, they can be taught to love, for love comes more naturally to the human heart than its opposite. Human goodness is a flame that can be hidden but never extinguished.”Nelson Mandela

Holy Week at St. Andrew’s 2015

Posted by: on Apr 3, 2012 | No Comments

Maundy Thursday commemorates the last night that Jesus spent with his disciples. It is the night which marks the beginning of the ritual of Holy Communion, the sharing of the bread and cup in memory of Jesus. The name, “Maundy Thursday”, comes from the Latin word for command, mandatum, for it was on this night that Jesus is remembered as giving a new commandment: “A new commandment I give to you, that you love one another, as I have loved you.”

The parishes of the ECUY observe Maundy Thursday together, at a common service at St. Andrew’s. We do not try to replicate the Jewish seder, or Passover meal, but we do have a tradition of sharing a potluck meal on this night featuring foods from the Middle East. We will celebrate Holy Communion in the context of this meal. We will also observe the ritual washing of each other’s feet, which is a sign of our willingness to serve one another as Jesus served us.

The service begins in the St. Andrew’s parish hall at 6:30 on Thursday, April 2.

Good Friday
The service of Good Friday begins at St. Andrew’s at 12:00 Noon. It is the day on which the Christian community remembers the crucifixion of Jesus.

Easter Sunday
The Feast of the Resurrection, or Easter Sunday, begins at St. Andrew’s at our regular worship time, 10:00 am, on Sunday, April 5.

Everyone is welcome.
