Seder Meal

 April 18  Holy Thursday or Maundy Thursday

Seder Meal

In an upper room,
twelve join Him for Seder meal.
He washes their feet
then breaks bread and shares a cup
and asks to be remembered.

One will be the rock
upon which a church is built.
One will turn his back,
choose coin over faithfulness.
He will be nailed to a cross.

Thanks Juris,  It's a Holy Day today which inspired the poem and my blog entry.  Tomorrow's Good Friday poem will step a little further away from scripture but will carry the theme.   Maybe for Easter I'll write something more frivolous about bunnies, chicks and little lambs instead of an open tomb.  Lighten it up a little. ~~Tink

Reminds me of an account of the Donner Party I read many years ago, which had a sentence near the beginning that chillingly reads (as I recall), "The slain walked at the side of the slayer."

Thank you, Judy.  (I think)
