The Upper Room
Mark 14:12-16, / Luke 22:7-13 / Matthew 26:17-19
There are places that have become so meaningful, that to mention the place is to flood the mind with memories that move us to the very depths of our lives. That place may be a small cafe where two people knew for the first time that they loved each other. That cafe is forever changed in memory. For others it may be a sanctuary where God became real in our experience, and that place picks up a greater significance than any other place in the world.
An upper room in the city of Jerusalem became such a place, and for the rest of history, all someone has had to say is “The Upper Room” and Christian imagination floods with memories.
As we begin the Season of Lent it would be useful to explore the events that took place in that room one particular Thursday. The postings can be found under the Rubric “The Upper Room”.
