Monday of Holy Week The House of God

Rev Lesley Taylor

For each of the meditations, there is a Bible passage to take us through Holy Week, followed by a meditation on the passage "in a few words". This will be followed by questions for you to think about. The questions will be the same every day.

Before the meditation
You might like to light a candle or make some sacred space with some flowers, a cross, whatever works for you.

Read
Matthew 21: 12-17......slowly

Busy, busy, busy
Voices shouting
Birds squawking
Clinking money
A man watching
Loud crash
Tables tumble
Silence
The man's voice
"My house, a place of prayer"
Becomes a place of healing
Hosanna
Children shouting
Chief priests
Teachers of the law
"How dare this man?"
"Who does he think he is?"
The man speaks
Children recognise
Messiah
Jesus leaves
Back to Bethany.

Questions
Are there any particular words, images which strike you from reading the Scripture or the meditation?
What might God be saying to you?

Rev Dr Roberta TophamIntroductionThe gospel reading for this Sunday is the story of the feeding of the 5,000 according to Matthew. This version misses out the detail that John's gospel gives about the little boy who has the five loaves of bread and two fish but still it captures the sense of Jesus doing a lot with a little. Bible reading: Matthew 14: 13 -21When Jesus heard what had...
