Holy Week: Day Four, The Last Supper

By | 7:41 AM 1 comment

 On day four of Holy Week our theme was a focus on the last supper.

Jeremiah washed all the kids and nannies feet and then we sang a few songs and led a simple communion service. It was a new concept for the kids and they had a lot of questions, but it was a sweet time. There is something powerful about someone washing your feet, looking at you as an individual and expressing God's love for you.

We read from the the John 13 account:

It was just before the Passover Feast. Jesus knew that the time had come for him to leave the world and go to the Father. Having loved his own who were in the world, he now showed them the full extent of his love. vs.1

Jesus got up from the meal, took off his outer clothing, and wrapped a towel around his waist. After that, he poured water into a basin and began to wash his disciples feet, drying them with a towel. vs.4

Now that I, your Lord and Teacher, have washed your feet, you should also wash one another's feet. I have set you an example that you should do as I have done for you. I tell you the truth no servant is greater than his master, nor is a messenger greater than the one who sent him. Now that you know these things, you will be blessed if you do them. vs.13-17

I have participated in a couple of these. It is a very humbling and moving experience. This is not something they will forget.
