Lectionary Haiku 14 April 2022

Maundy Thursday

The evolution of Passover from the rescue of a captive people to an inner release and unification that is of inner and cosmic significance marks this day. It culminates in the transcendence of the power of servanthood over the power of domination.

Dressed ready to flee
Slain lambs prepared for daubing
Doorposts to freedom

All praise to the Lord
who loosed my prisoner’s chains
I serve Him gladly

1 Corinthians 11:23-26

It’s through bread and wine
That we tell the wondrous deed
Death releasing Life


John 13:1-17, 31b-35

A basin and towel
tell the story of greatness
modelled on God’s love
