Invitation to the Table | Maundy Thursday (Year C)

The following invitation to the table is by Scott Cervas.

The parade is in the past…
the hosannas have hushed…
and Jesus has retreated to an upper room
to quietly dine with his disciples.

We’ve been invited to the table
to share in the mystery
of broken bread…
of a cup of wine…
and of feet humbly washed,
challenging us to eat, drink, and remember…together,
and to love and serve one another
just as Jesus loves and serves us.

We’ve been invited to the table
to see Judas get up from his seat
and walk out the door…
challenging us to look into our hearts,
and glimpse the signs of our own acts of betrayal.

So let’s take our place at this table…
where we sense our brokenness
and experience God’s grace
all at once.

Let us pray…
