Maundy Thursday

a foretaste of things to come.

A day of story telling;

the Passover

the Last Supper

Foot washing

The Garden of Gethsemane

When Jesus Shared

When Jesus shared his bread and wine
and faced his final day -
Did we not promise, we will stay?

When Jesus in Gethsemane
asked us to watch and pray -
Did we not sleep the night away?

When Judas kissed him on the cheek
and soldiers took our Lord to slay -
Did we not also run away?

When Jesus was reviled and mocked
and we were asked to own his name -
Did we not also love betray?

When Jesus walked towards his cross
and stumbled on the way -
Were we not hidden far away?
