Re-Membered

Something from our Palm Sunday service where we journey through the whole week. Here’s a dialogue from that service at the point when we arrive at the Last Supper:

1: I take this bread…

2: And he took himself

1: Broken for you…

2: His body, himself.

1: Whenever you do this…

2: in every meal, every gathering round any table in any place

1: Remember me…

2: put the body back together again. Re-member, all the different parts… all the different nations, cultures, tribes, bring them back. Re-member… Find a common meeting place here and God’s greatest promise…

1: And the cup also…

2: Full and running over

1: The new covenant…

2: the first covenant fulfilled in Passover, the final fulfilled at table…

1: Sealed in my blood…

2: This is no cheep grace… This is the love sealed by following it through… letting nothing stop it… choosing to cross every line the world lays down… sealed only in the final sacrifice that comes with death… and trusting even beyond that…

1: And when you drink of it all of you…

2: Christ’s invitation to take part in the great story of salvation.

1: Remember me…

2: Re-member… Bring back the stories… bring back the words… bring back the life that shaped the kingdom… bring back the times of healing… the touch of love… the grace that speaks to the lost and the stranger… Bring back the welcoming of the outsider… the Samaritan… the Syrophoenician… the Prodigal… the Roman… the Leper… all who have been excluded… Bring back the vineyard workers… the woman who touched Jesus cloak… bring back Lazarus and Mary… and the wife of Chuza… bring back the signs of the kingdom and the people who found they had entered it… when they turned the other cheek… kept on knocking… and blessed the poor… Bring back… Re-member… them all…

And so the ancient ghosts of Passover… joined the newest saints today… and in each story shared… Jesus was remembered…
