Table of Stories

January 27, 2017

 

 

Here's how we'll set the table on Sunday: with stories. After each story a different part of the table will be put in place.

 

 

 

 

 

Once a while group of people

 

fell out with Jesus

 

because he broke some rules

 

and did something when the rules said he shouldn’t

 

But Jesus lived by rules

 

when someone is hungry, feed them

 

when someone hurts, help them

 

and it doesn’t matter what day of the week it is

 

love comes first

 

then come the rules

 

 

 

Table Cloth left side

 

 

 

 

 

Thrown in a pit by his brothers

 

he was sold into Egyptian slavery

 

but chance turned things round

 

and he found his brothers

 

unaware of who he was

 

And caught between retaliation and compassion

 

Joseph chose compassion

 

and love won again

 

 

 

Table clothes right side

 

 

 

 

 

Here’s a man with a big heart.

 

But he was a small man.

 

and to see Jesus

 

he climbed a tree

 

Spied by the saviour

 

he was taken to tea

 

feeding a hungry soul

 

and a longing for justice

 

 

 

Plates of bread

 

 

 

 

 

A Samaritan

 

and an opportunity

 

to do for others

 

the loving thing

 

Here in this story

 

you see what a good neighbour looks like

 

clothed as your enemy

 

yet helping a stranger

 

on roadside, wrong side, any side

 

 

 

 

 

Trays of wine

 

 

 

The widow met a prophets need,

 

little was more than enough

 

in the hands of God.

 

the bread never ran out

 

the gift that was given

 

was an abundance of grace

 

Every table from then on

 

was filled with the generosity of God

 

 

 

 

 

Any final items

 

 

 

Welcome to the table

 

the table of stories

 

But these childhood stories grow up

 

into this story

 

set out on this table...
