An upper room

After Luke 22:7-13

He sends them to find

a place, a room for the meal,

the meal to remember

the passing of the angel

of death over the dwellings,

sparing those with a splash

of lamb’s blood on the door.

They gather each year,

ss commanded, with family,

a quiet, somber gathering

to remember the escape

from death, a celebration

of death avoided, death

redeemed, life secured.


They find the room,

as directed, furnished

and prepared for the meal.

They gather to remember

the sacrifice of the lamb.

Amen, Glynn! May we all remember that Last Supper every time we take communion.
