Gathered in the Upper Room - 2

Pausing in the congregation
remembering, ever,
He knew, he was fully aware
that which they/we could not comprehend
The sacrifice, his body
broken, fulfilling all scripture
the ancient words of the prophet
the lamb, his blood, given, poured out
on the lintels of our hearts
making them/us whole

As David was praying
“The Great Thanksgiving”,
not merely reading the words
written on the page
Exodus 4:1-17
Romans 12:1-8
John 13:12-17
