With the opportunity on the weekend to special at a Corps in SA, the team and I ran a Sensory Worship time on Maundy Thursday evening, with the title “You prepare a table for me”. It was a beautiful time where people had the opportunity to pray (healing, confession, repentance, peace, strength, love, etc.) with the aid of some rich food and fruit juice. In preparation, I ran across the following illustration.
Following the link to its original location, you’ll find people have asked in the comment section “How is Psalm 23 relevant to the children in the photographs?” I ask, How is Psalm 23 not relevant to these children?
Does this give us a sense of how far away from God’s Kingdom Come we really are, and how much work there is yet to do?
The LORD is my Shepherd, I shall not want.
He makes me lie down in green pastures.
He leads me beside still waters.
He restores my soul.
He leads me in paths of righteousness for his name’s sake.
Even though I walk through the valley of the shadow of death,
I will fear no evil, for you are with me;
your rod and your staff, they comfort me.
You prepare a table before me in the presence of my enemies
you anoint my head with oil; my cup overflows.
Surely goodness and mercy shall follow me all the days of my life,
and I shall dwell in the house of the Lord forever.
