Today I learned why we had pancake dinners on Shrove Tuesday. It was to use up the milk and eggs before the Lenten fasting. http://www.getreligion.org/?p=2325
I just keep accumulating information. Tomorrow is Maundy Thursday. When I was a kid, I thought grandma was saying Monday Thursday. So I looked stuff up.
I looked up information about foot washing too. I want to go to a "Love Feast and Communion" at a church I don't know very well. Is that a meal or a cracker? I'm hoping they'll have a foot washing but I can't tell. How much information would make me feel comfortable?
