Pause and breathe in the Easter story each day of Holy Week with us.
Here is our Monday Reflection.
The Painting – The Last Supper by Nebiyu Assefa (to view a larger image click here: https://www.imaginor.co.uk/wp-content/uploads/2020/04/JiELarge-pictures.pdf )
The Story: Jesus knew that the end of his time on earth was drawing closer. He wanted to share the special Passover meal with his disciples. As they ate together, Jesus did something unexpected. He took some bread and gave it to his friends saying “Take and eat; this is my body”. Then he took a cup and offered it round. “Drink from it, all of you. This is my blood which is poured out for many for the forgiveness of sins. Do this to remember me.”
Reflect: In his painting The Last Supper, the artist Nebiyu Assefa shows the disciples looking puzzled and confused. I wonder what they are thinking as he offers them the bread and the wine.
Create: Using modelling material, old scraps of fabric, coloured bits of paper, or anything you have around your home, make a model or picture of the table in the story of The Last Supper or maybe recreate the scene using Lego or Playmobile figures.
Pray: Lord Jesus Thank you for giving us signs and symbols to help us remember who you are and what you have done for us. As we travel through this Holy Week together, give us a fresh understanding of your teaching and your love for us. Amen
