Call to commumion

Call to worship
Leader :         Just before the soldiers took Jesus away, he had some kai with his besties.
Kids :              It was a special meal – Passover – and everyone was stoked.
All :                 But pretty soon, Jesus started to get real serious
Leader:          It’s time for me to die, he said
Kids:               One of you will betray me, he said
All:                  It’s not me, is it?  They all asked
Leader:          But Jesus changed the subject.  He took a piece of the bread they were eating, lifted it up and                 broke in half saying:
Kids:                This is my body – it’s breaking for you. 
All:                  Eat this.  Remember this.
Leader:          He picked up the cup they were drinking out of and said:
Kids:                This is my blood – a promise poured out for everyone
All:                  Drink this.  I’ll drink with you again in God’s kingdom 
Leader:          We’re still eating and drinking like he told us too. 
Still remembering;
Still looking forward to seeing him again;
Still being fed by him. 
Real food. 
Real drink.

This is a guest entry by my talented new colleague, the Rev Rory Grant. This week we are running the whole service as a communion liturgy. "Kai" is a Maori word meaning food.
